Debbie Haffner asked 10 years ago

Can nail holes be re-filled after they have already been painted?

Yes they can be refilled. The biggest problem you might run into is getting the new filler, spackling paste or color putty, to stick. I recommend using a finish nail to dig out some of the filler then refill. This is especially true for color putties used on stained wood.

Yes. Most nail fillers will even re-assure of this on the back label as well. Same goes for caulk
