FIX A NAIL HOLE
Ensure you have the right color by ordering a color chart at getsoto.com/colorchart.
Clean surface with mild detergent to remove dirt, dust, grease, oil and loose paint.
* WARNING: If you scrape, sand or remove old paint (pre-1978 homes), you may release lead dust. LEAD IS TOXIC. Contact the National Lead Information Hot Line at 1-800-424-LEAD, or log on to www.epa.gov/lead for more info. Keep out of reach of children. Includes acrylic resin. Not for internal consumption. If ingested, do not induce vomiting. Contact medical support.
Use spackle knife blade or pocket knife to cut away any frayed edges.
Step 4 (Important!)
Pound edges of hole with a blunt object so they sit slightly lower than wall. This is a very important step to ensure the repair is flush with the wall or surface.
Squirt spackle directly into hole until it is overfilled.
To help push spackle out of tube, use included tube key.
Use spackle knife to scrape excess spackle from hole so it levels with surrounding surface. Dry for 30 minutes.
Once dry, lightly sand surface with sandpaper to level with wall or surface.
Step 8 (Optional)
Using a damp cloth, gently wipe away any excess spackle surrounding the hole. This will help blend the repair into the surrounding surface if you are not painting it.
Step 9 (Optional)
Paint over spackle with color matched paint to yield an especially seamless repair or paint an entire wall with a new color. Check out Soto Paint Touch Up!
Clean up immediately with soap and water. Wipe tools dry and store in original packaging in cool/dry place.
