...to use painters putty, spackling, mud and caulk. the guys i work for, caulk everything, cracks in walls, nail holes, holes in window frames, cracks in trim. this is how they've taught me, but its so messy and i can tell where we have painted over caulk sometimes. i know mud is generally used to patch larger holes, but what use would "spackling" or painters putty be? and what are some trusted brands. also, to the guy who knows about lowes de'specd products, is their denatured alcohol and mineral spirits alright to use? what about buying mud or putty from lowes, i know im really hesitant about buying any painting supplies from there anymore since the wooster incident. i have bought some wooster rollers though and they seem fine, kinda hard to mess that up i would think.
