Don't buy this product-patch is useless
The patch itself is the worst product ever!

This was a terrible product. Used it to patch some nail spots and small holes before painting. Did decent job getting flush and clean after. Sat 12+ hours to dry. Sanded day after. While painting it started coming off and spreading around as if it were still wet. Learned from first wall I had to be gentle around patched areas but the first one has several spots and uneven patches where it moved around while painting. Read instructions so not sure how it could have been applied any different.

Great Product If Properly Applied
I rarely write reviews; however, when I saw that the only review bad-mouthed the product I thought it only fair to provide some balance. Yes, it's true the patch "as-is" is thick. However, if after applying it to the wall you properly sand it down to be flush with the wall, the resulting repair looks great. Not being much of a DIY guy, I put the patch on, sanded it lightly and then painted the area. It looked bad and my first thought was, "I should have listened to the reviewer who said the patch was too thick". Then my wife took a look and said "You really need to sand that down more." (Like I said, I'm not the guy you would hire to do your household repairs.) Trying to keep on the good side with my wife, I got out the sandpaper and sanded down the patch until it was virtually flush with the wall. Gave it a couple coats of paint and it looked great! Attached is a picture of the repaired wall. You be the judge. [To give you a clue the patched hole was from our prior thermometer just above our new thermometer.] I hope this is helpful.
