Paul Gonsalves of PTG Construction in Ottawa shares his tip on highlighting drywall touch-ups before painting.

It can be hard to see drywall touch-ups if the room isn’t heavily lit up or if the mud is a close colour to the wall. Mix in a little chalk line powder to your mud and it will easily stand out on the wall once dried. A light sand, primer touch-up, and you’re good for topcoats.
