Are we supposed to be using a particular brand of spackle for best results?  I'm in S. Cal, Home Depot or Ace Harware are the easiest supply places. Thanks

If your not using a tight fused EPS (Molded) and are using a cheap construction grade EPS then you need to Spackle.

You can buy the Dap Fast 'N Final at Lowes. I've looked for it at HD but they don't have it. Thin with distilled water.

Lowes is the place to find it as Stingray say's.


Also good point to thin with distilled water.


Straight tap water can cause yellowing!
