Also asked, how do you fill nail holes without spackle?
What you need: Toothpaste (the regular white kind, not the gel), an extra toothbrush and a pack of playing cards. Step 1: Brush toothpaste directly into the hole, then use a playing card to scrape off any excess. Step 2: Give it 24 hours to dry. If you can still see any imperfections, give it a second coat.
Also Know, can you use spackle to fill holes in wood? Spackle is a ready-to-use compound used for holes, cracks and imperfections in plaster, wallboard, wood, painted metal and masonry. It dries very quickly and is considered to be shrink-free. You do not need to prime over a hole repaired with spackle unless you are spackling an exterior area.
Beside this, can I use caulk to fill nail holes?
Caulk is great for. On the other hand, caulk is terrible for filling nail holes and other holes in wood because over time it will shrink and cause a divot. And wood filler is a terrible choice for filling gaps in trim – it would take forever to apply and sand.
What can I use if I don't have spackle?
1. Make a quick substitute for spackle.To fill in a small hole, mix a bit of baking soda and a bit of white glue until you have a paste, then use your fingers to ply the paste to fill in the hole.
