DryDex is a Dap spackle that works fine on base before prime. I use my finger and dust off access with my fingertips. 9 times out of 10, finishing nail holes don't even need to be sanding. Do the same thing on walls for pine/small naile holes. Why sand if you don't need to. Cracks me up when some painters come on site and they use a putty knife for a finishing holes and go sand it after. You could spend all day doing that.

For larger fastners (door frames), will use crackshot. Another Dap product.

I do everything before prime and touch up as needed.

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

I'm presuming all it does is soaks up and dries out the oil.

I would like to see a nail hole patch that would expand as it dries so when you sand it down it would level out.

I try to put the patch on a little thick so I have to sand it down to match, but it's a little time consuming that way.

Default trim hole master

About twenty years ago I was taught to fill nail holes with spackling. Overfill the holes so when you sand it off there is a level finish to cover for possible shrinkage of the spackling. Of late I use a high quality caulk with little shrinkage and wipe it clean with a sponge that is rung out well. May not be the best way but noone wants to put out the money for a seriously quality paint job anymore, so we all cut corners.
