It's very cheap and inexpensive to just get painter's Putti or spackling and just do it the correct way. In the long run that's the best option

Chassity, do you need to paint over painters putty? Can you post a project if you happen to use it? The soap is a great option for people leaving a rental an needing a quick fix if they don't have time to run to home depot. 👍
