Red Devil’s Guide to Choosing the Right Spackling

There are various types of spackling Red Devil offers and at times, it may be confusing to decide which one is best for you. Take a look at this handy guide we created to help make the decision a little easier.  

How to Repair Tiny Thumb Tack Holes in Your Wall

So you just got a brand spanking new apartment and you are all excited to paint your walls the color that best expresses you. Then you spot some tiny wall buzz-killers called thumb tack holes and all seems lost. These nearly microscopic holes occur when thumbtacks or small push pins are used to hang pictures or posters. Fortunately, these types of holes can be easily repaired and blended into the surrounding wall so you can paint with confidence. All you need is a finger, some lightweight spackling, and a damp rag!

Tips & Tricks: The Trick to Fixing a Poor Spackling Job

If a previous spackling job left you with rough edges or an unblended texture, you can remedy this by using a drywall sander. A hand held sander is a grip-able applicator that you can set sand paper on for smoothing out surfaces. You will want to use 100-grit sandpaper to level out really rough, high-level spots and use 200-grit sandpaper (which has a more even, gentle distribution of grit) to smooth out the texture.
