Hey just wondering what everyone uses to putty nail holes
Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed. --Herman Melville
Stain or paint?
Inside or out?

Inside and paint grade
Use something appropriate for the material with the nail hole.
Wood? Wood filler. Wood will puke spackle out over time if you have a lot of humidity
It's for trimwork..I use painters putty but that doesnt leave a flawless fill..I'm looking for something for high end work where u could never even tell there was a nail hole there
I use Dap products for painted fill, but do put it on proud of the surface and sand later. On occasion have mixed up some Durabond, dries hard-sandable-doesn't shrink much. Used a product from Elmers-can't remember if I liked it-it froze up on a lazy night I didn't bring in the caulk bag.
Have some WoodFiller from Minwax that I thought worked ok.
One of the painters uses something I'd never seen b/4. Looked like glazing in the can, but does harden and sand. I should have written the name down. It's from his paint supplier I would guess.
At any rate, most of the painters I use want to do the filling and do a good job of it.
To me, there's no difference in high and regular-perfect will be close enough for the job.
Well, there is some difference...............
Durabond is a pretty good idea..I saw something like that..it was called tough something at lowes..it was a powder that u mix up...and as for that glazing your sayin I think there is something called glazing putty in a red can..never used it tho...I guess ill just have to actually test out the products and see for myself
The glazing putty is just that-Glazing.
It will never harden (much) and has some oil in it I believe-not good if you're topcoating with latex (I don't think).
The stuff I saw, looked like glazing in the can (more smooth in consistancy, but did harden like spackle.
There's something that's used with Azek-Top and Bond or Top'n'bond, that might work good. Never saw it, never used it.
