This was recommended by a friend to fill nail holes in my new baseboard. It worked great for that. I have always used DAP products in the past and have always had great results. This time I used it on a new buffet cabinet I was building. Used to it fill nail holes from attaching the face frame and to fill a small gap from trimming out the top. I used it on solid hard maple. Dried super quick, sanded down no problem. I primed and painted the entire cabinet and it turned out great.

Excited to try this product. Applied and waited for pink to change to white. Cool to see that. Then waited two more days before painting. When painting over the patches, they began peeling off. Very disappointed by the results. Went to hardware store to complain. They said I should have used a primer before painting, yet nowhere on the product instructions does it recommend using primer first. Messed up my paint job. Not looking forward to spending another weekend re-doing what I just did.

    I have tried other products with in this features and they did not hold up well. Some were a chore to clean up and left mess everywhere. After trying this brand out I have to say it holds up very nicely. I was not aware of this brand before the survey but I am glad I had the chance to try it and I will be buying this from now on.

          I have used DAP products many times, its a brand I trust will have great results and quality.
          This stuff is great for repairing those small patch jobs, like cracks and holes. It's easy to apply and the fact that it can be used on multiple surfaces (drywall, plaster, wood, brick and stone) allows you to do more with one product. With the color changing indicator, it takes the guesswork out of when it is dry- when applied it's pink and once it turns white its dry. Being able to sand it down and throw on a layer of paint rigjt on top is great too.
          I received a free sample to review.

            I really like this spackling. It's easy to
            apply and it's not messy. What I like best about the spackling is it goes on pink and turns white as it dries; therefore, I know when it's dry simply by looking at it. This is a product that I definitely would buy again and again.

                      DryDex Spackling is a no brainer. I needed to fill in nail holes and it was so simple. You apply it pink and when it dries it turns white and you can sand it. With the color changing it beats all other brands there is no more guess work if it is ready to sand or not. If you are in need of spackling DryDex Spackling is your first choice. I love it.

                        I have used this for nail holes, ceiling patching and even outside! I have repaired my garage door and exterior trim boards last year and this product is still holding together! Thin layers are easier to deal with but i globbed it on and still had no issues. Don't forget to use tape when necessary!

                                My husband went "patching crazy" when we received DAP's DryDex Spackling -- a product we knew nothing about. Applications was super easy, the spackling was the right consistency to apply and stick to surfaces unlike other various products we have used and tossed to the back of the work shed. It quickly dried and turned white on the flush surfaces leaving the indentation area sstill pink. This "3-D" effect in color made it easy to know exactly where the indentation was preventing over application to flush surfaces. We both were impressed with its adhesive qualities to surfaces -- a must for us. We are both recommending DAP's DryDex Spackling to friends and families. Thoroughly impressed! Can't say enough as to how much we liked DAP's DryDex Spackling.

                                  I used this product in several locations in my home, in every location the paint had bubbles underneath form from lack of adhesion to the product.

                                  I ended up scraping off all this excrement and using a different company's product.

                                  I wasted so much time trying to patch up a hole in my wall using this product. I applied two thin layers, waiting between each layer to dry. However, the spackle started to peel off and come off the wall when I painted (after light sanding) So i thought i didn't let it dry enough before sanding. I tried again and let it dry for THREE days. This time before I started sanding, I touched the spackle with my fingers and noticed that it had not firmed up and was coming off the wall. What junk product.

                                  I purchased this product because of its color changing ability. But, that was a mistake. What I should have done is research product reviews prior to purchasing. After preparing my wall surface, and applying a coat, AND waiting until the next day prior to applying another coat; this product failed.

                                  I applied several coats over the week, as described above. Then waited a week before painting the surface today. And just as others have commented here, the product peeled off upon the first coat. In one of the other reviews, someone states they took the product back to the store for a refund (not available to me as an option considering the time I've taken applying the product) and he was told that he should have put primer first... PLEASE believe me when I say: That does NOT make a difference. I myself was applying primer before color matching my wall, and the product still came off. And this is after a week's worth of dry time!

                                  I am including a photo.

                                  PLEASE: Do not waste your money on this product. You will be disappointed. You should just buy normal putty, or putty mix, and repair your home. This product is a waste of money, effort, and time!

                                      Product does not cure properly. Flakes and will not hold paint. Company has several complaints about this product, but does not recall bad batches. Why would you want to deal with such a poor responding company? They offered me a refund if I had the receipt. Who keeps receipts for this type of purchase? Thy finally offered me a replacement product several days later, like I have time to keep the project on hold! I responded "keep your lousy product"!

                                      Bought the drywall patch kit. Applied the patch, spackled, waited a few hours for the pinkness to go away and dried overnight. Came back the next morning, sanded, noticed a lot of flakiness. Came back a day later and, while it was still intact, lightly touched it with my finger and it started to fall apart. There's no way it would accept paint or primer and the test of time, it is completely useless, flaky, loses its consistency, breaks apart. Now I have to buy a different joint compound and do it all again.

                                        I bought a tub thinking this should work well. Turns out it just keeps peeling off.

                                        Especially if you try to put more than one coat on. The moisture from the second coat causes it to bubble and ultimately gets into the first layer causing everything to get weakened. Weakened to the point the spackle just falls off... I tried it on different patch sizes, small 4x4" up to 8x8" with the same result. Any moisture from a second layer or paint just ruins the stuff.

                                        I thought maybe it works best as a one application/one layer type of thing. Nope, I was wrong. Same results with just one layer and after applying paint. It seems like the moisture seeps into the spackle and causes it to peel and fall off.

                                        Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, did it a third time and just wasted days trying to repair a couple holes.

                                        DO NOT BUY. Followed directions clearly, watched multiple youtube videos, and ultimately ended up here, where I thought I should also say, buyer beware. Do not waste your time or money!!!

                                            I applied this product as directed in 3 rooms of my newly rocked walls and wasted a ton of money not only on the spackle, but also the primer, paint, tools, and time!!!!!! The Benjerman Moore Paint on top of Zinsser 2 peeled off the walls like American Cheese from the Plastic. This product should be recalled at home terrible it is! I can Not believe that you can sell this!

                                              Not sure why this review of Spackle needs to know my cooking prowess?

                                              This has a neeto factor changing colors when dry, but lets remember I sent 3 days spakling so when i put paint on the wall the Spackle would stay on the wall. Yes I did stir the heck out of it, I did prep the area, I did prime the wall, I have done this type of repairs for 20+ years. This is the worst product ever and it is clearly not the first review of its kind... so suprised that it is still on the shelves...

                                              Goes on nice and pink, dries white, sands nicely, but a few hours or days after painting the product will curl and give a rough gator skin texture to the project.

                                                Was excited to try it, roommate likes anything pink so the novelty was cool.
                                                Mixed it up, applied, waited til it turned white and it cracked.
                                                Applied second coat and it cracked again.
