The missing ingredient to quality framing
Comments about Amaco Nail Hole and Corner Filler:
I make a lot of my own frames and have tried wood fillers and other big box carpentry products but ended up spending too much time sanding them smooth. This stuff Is ply able and paintable so it is a fast way to put a professional finish to my cheap home made frames. If the is a short coming it would be it is a bit stiff out of the can but still manageable.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bought this to correct flaws on kithcen cabinets. Blended in very well. Easy to use. Do not know how it well it will wear. I have used other colors to repair antique frames with good results as well.
This appears to be a clay-based material and the black coloring appears to be charcoal. I used it to fill in some small defects on the backs of several frames. The material applies easily with a caulking spatula. However, the black coloring smears on touching. The material really never dried. I let it set for a day and the material was still damp, deformable, and the coloring smeared badly when touched. I finally used a hair dryer multiple times to get things dry enough to complete the framing. The 3M double-sided roll-on tape material does not stick to it well, so I had trouble getting the backing paper corners to stay down. What I found works better is using plain old wood filler from the hardware store and a black marker for color.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

best nail filler available
My customer recommended this filler and it works remarkably well. It doesn't shrink or fall out, it has a very nice finish to it as well. It should be kept cool as if it gets hot (I had kept them in my work trailer during one summer) they become a bit messy. Sorry to say, white was my most commonly used color, and they don't carry that any more for some reason.

I wish I had never ordered this.
By C Jean
from Kula, HI
So - this product would have been great, if it was not messy. I thought it would work like a putty and not remain wet forever. It turns out that after a week, the black hole filler I purchased is still wet, like black shoe polish - and shows no intention of drying. I'm not sure why anyone would want to put black grease on a frame, because every time I touch it, it gets on my hands, and then is tracked around the house. This stuff has ruined four of my frames - I should have tested it on one. I have NEVER purchased such a bad product from Blick. Usually Blick has great products, and my only issue in the past has been damage during shipping, or shipping itself - and Blick has awesome customer service and has been able to solve my issues. This, I am afraid, has no solution. I can't get it off my frames - and the time and effort I originally spent framing my work is lost. I can't bring my work to the gallery and hang it, and I can't bring it to the art fair. So I have four pieces of artwork that I have lost money on. Save yourself two dollars and buy shoe polish instead. I bet this is the same stuff.

Save the day with this one...
from Temecula, CA
These fillers are a life saver so much of the time! Sometimes I have an above excellent frame, (maybe handed down to me and some real good "value") and yet one little scrape or scratch mark can ruin the integrity of what it is framing!That is when this product shows up like superman vs. cryptonite!!! : ) Love this product. Also, and as always - the DICK BLICK team are ever there and helpful with their suggestions.Happy Consumer & Hobbyist
