Patchtastic is a revolutionary way to patch holes in your walls without needing traditional tools or handymen. It is a mesh cover that comes with plaster and a paint tube, allowing anyone to effortlessly patch wall holes within minutes. The paint tube should be filled with paint that is the color of your walls. This means you will need to know what color your apartment or house walls are if you are renting a space to live. After the mesh and plaster is applied, the paint is applied directly from the tube, allowing you to cover up a hole in the wall without much precision or expertise.
Patchtastic gives you the opportunity to save money and time by not hiring handymen to patch wall holes for you. Instead, you can rely on its three step process of covering the hole, plastering it and painting over the hole with the easy to use paint tube. According to the infomercial, you can patch up 200 small nail holes with the kit. If your wall holes happen to be bigger, you are able to cover 12 medium sized holes with one kit. For very large holes ( such as the size of a doorknob ), you are able to cover two large holes with one kit.
The cost of Patchtastic is $10.00 plus $5.95 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Patchtastic by paying the extra shipping fee of $5.95 for a total price of $21.9. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Patchtastic being discontinued. Patchtastic may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
Patchtastic comes with mesh patches that are applied onto holes in order to cover them up. The next step is to use the plastic spreader card to spread plaster onto the mesh patch. As you are smoothing out the plaster onto the wall, the mesh patch allows for the plaster to be filled into the tiny holes, leaving a flat surface ready to be painted. Afterwards, you need to apply paint with the tube provided in the kit. This tube needs to be filled with paint via a simple pump. Once the paint tube is filled, the user just needs to apply the paint onto the plastered wall until the plaster is completely hidden. Furthermore, once the wall paint dries, the job is done and your wall should look like there was never a hole there to begin with ( provided the color of paint chosen matches the wall ).
This kit is complete with everything needed to cover a wall hole. It comes with 2 plaster packets, a mixing spoon, 3 mesh patches, a plastic spreader card, sand paper, a paint applicator tube and two paint transfer pumps. The only additional element you would need is the paint needed for the finishing touch.
The patches included in the kit can be adjusted and cut to fit the size of your exact wall hole. If you have a dozen tiny nail holes that need patching, you are able to resize the mesh patches with a pair of scissors. Furthermore, if you have very large wall holes ( such as the size of a fist ), you would need to combine mesh patches to ensure you cover the entire area. Naturally, combining mesh patches would leave less material over for other patch up projects.
You could always learn the traditional way of patching up a hole instead of having a kit. This would mean you would need special tools meant for patching and some basic instruction on how to patch a wall hole with these tools and applications.
Instead of doing this yourself, you could always hire someone else to patch all the holes in your walls for you. Hiring an expert would lessen the likelihood of costly errors, though experts do not normally come cheaply.
If this is your first time patching hole, start with the small hole first in the most discreet location. This way, if you make a mistake, it won’t be an obvious flaw easily spotted. After a few tries, you will become better at patching holes with this kit.
Make sure you use the same color of paint for your patching project as your wall. If the color is even one shade of, this will make the patching job more obvious. Brush a sample of paint in a discreet location on the wall and see how it dries. Keep in mind that painting without plaster will make the paint shade darker, as you are painting over an existing color. By using a little plaster first before testing your paint, you will be able to see the true color of the paint after it dries.

So easy to use, and once you are done all the remaining pieces go into the trash. No storing of anything. Fix the holes and it's like it never happened. The applicator tubes are also great for long term storage of your paint and great for touch-ups. Great value.
