          It did the job. Wasn't as plastic as the label read. I do like the fact that it applied pink, and dried white to let you know it was safe to sand and paint.

                    I bought this to fill gaps in my siding and it works really well. When it changes color from pink to tan it is ready to paint. It was easy to put on and it can be sanded and then painted. I would recommend.

                        Beware. Does not take amber shellac.
                        Filled nail holes in basement steps after stripping shellac. Used amber shellac on stairs and am sorry I countersunk and filled nail holes. Filler stands out more than the nails would have. Did not affect the filler at all.

                        Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to see your low star review on DAP Plastic Wood-X All-Purpose Wood Filler. As indicated on the product package label and supporting product literature: "2. Match wood filler color to finished wood. Test wood filler, stain and finish combination on a small area first to ensure desired stain color. 3. If wood is to be stained, stain before filling with wood filler. Then use stain to develop desired final finish. Please follow stain manufacturer’s instructions for application." Based on your commentary indicating: "Used amber shellac on stairs and am sorry I countersunk and filled nail holes. Filler stands out more than the nails would have. Did not affect the filler at all.”, it would appear the referenced application guidance was not followed. At your convenience, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477 so that we can obtain some additional information from you about your project/application and to offer some additional finishing guidance.

                          Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to see your low star review on DAP Plastic Wood All-Purpose Wood Filler. We are not clear as to your commentary indicating: "hard to spread evenly usually just used my fingers so smash it into screw holes”, as both the product package label and supporting product literature recommend: “Press wood filler firmly into place with a putty knife, spatula or tool.” At no time to we recommend the use of a finger (or any direct skin contact). To aid in tooling/smoothing the filler, the putty knife/spreading tool can be sprayed with/dipped in water.

                                I used this to hide some spots on plywood for a bookshelf door that I made. Sanded cleanly and painted well - I can't tell the difference between the wood and the wood filler. It looked so good that I wound up going back to do more areas that had minor blemishes.

                                  Placed this in a couple of large holes in our deck three weeks ago. It had dried and we had a solid stainer and was able to stain it. Last night it rained and this product is soft again and starting to show through the stain.

                                  Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to see your low star review on DAP Plastic Wood-X Latex Wood Filler. Plastic Wood-X is not designed or recommended for use as a "stand alone" product, as indicated on the product package label and supporting product literature: "Exterior applications must be coated with latex or oil-based paint or solid color stain”. The only way that the product would behave as described, is if there was moisture exposure. This means that water is entering the patch through the stain or bypassing it (from the edges or from underneath). Because you did not provide sufficient background details regarding your project, it is difficult to provide a more detailed response in this format. At your convenience, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477 so that we can obtain some additional information regarding your experience and to offer some additional guidance.

                                      This stuff works great! It dries fast. Only down side is it gumms up the sanding sponge. But its for small minor drywall repair anyway. I think its worth it for sure. Besides, a little rince and the sanding sponge is good to go.

                                          Thank you for posting your feedback. DAP Plastic Wood-X is designed, marketed, and labeled for use on minor cosmetic repairs, such as: nail/screw holes, cracks, etc. The thick texture/consistency of this product does not lend itself to large format spreading (resurfacing). Should you have any questions or wish to discuss this, please free to contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477. DAP
                                            Love that it changes color
                                            Worked great for what i needed it. I loved that it changes a different color when it dried to let me know i can now sand it and paint. Vary easy use and would recommend to anyone.

                                                    The stain chipped off the top of the wood filler, and the filler has started to shrink exposing the cracks again. Not happy at all.

                                                    Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to see your low star review on DAP Plastic Wood-X. The issue that you are describing appears to be related to joint movement (not stain/coating performance). DAP Plastic Wood dries solely by the evaporation of water. Once the water contained in the formula has evaporated, it becomes stable as a solid. No further “shrinkage” will occur once it has fully dried. The issue that you are describing is called “spalling”, surface popping/chipping as a result of movement withing a solid material. DAP Plastic Wood (All Versions) is a hard setting wood repair filler, it should not be used in applications that may be subject to movement (expansion/contraction/flexing). Because you did not provide any details about your application, it is difficult to provide a more specific response in this format. At your convenience, please contact DAP's Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477 so that we can obtain some additional information regarding your project and to provide you with more specific usage guidance or to recommend an alternate product.
