People should read labels before buying
This product is EXACTLY what is described. It's not Minwax's fault that consumers do not educated themselves before buying. Scary that these people work with power tools!

Wood Putty colonial maple color
For filling in small holes and also maches the color of the wood, does an excellant job. Have not found anything else better.

Read the label before buying!
I should have read the label and taken it to heart. This putty is non-hardening. What the use is non-hardening putty? WTF? I was using the ebony and it is very black, but I wanted to fill some carving on wood for contrast. This will not be durable.

After I removed the seal, I found that the putty was mostly dried up and unusable. Most likely it sat on the shelf too long. Generally, I like minwax products, the color match on the pine wasn’t great, it came out a bit dark but I’m not sure if that was related to the initial dryness or not.

Waste of time
Just realized that my job will never dry... Absurd product. I'm pretty disparage to think of all the work that will be require to remove and redo with a product that dry.

Junk product
When I read "non-hardening" on the label I though it would remain flexible, like acrylic gap fillers. I didn't realise I was it was an oxymoronic description of a putty the never goes hard. This stuff isn't a putty at all, it is wood coloured plasticine. Equally useless was the direction to wipe excess with a damp cloth - all you can do with the stuff is smear it.

When I realised what I had been sold, I managed to smear most of it off and clean the wood with eucalyptus oil. Wasted time buying it. Wasted time applying it. Wasted some more time cleaning it off again. The residue may yet cause further problems.

The product may have some very limited applications but if it's going to stay soft and sticky, the word "putty" will inevitably lead people into error. I didn't believe it could be true until I read others' similar experiences on the net.

I wish I could give it negative stars.

I want to be as close as possible to Georgian Cherry Gel Stain, I'm hoping this will blend in well with it.

How long does it take this wood putty to harden? I used it at door ways to fill small areas where the new vinyl Flooring gapped .
Candace M on Jul 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Months. Years. Who knows? It is NON-HARDENING putty. That means it doesn't harden. Did you read the label?
will this work on picture frame corners?
Pat P on May 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The description on the jar says quite clearly that the color remains constant after application and finishing. That is correct so make sure that you have the right colouring.
