OSB Walls in Garage


I just installed OSB in my garage 26x36x14 and I want to fill in all the seams and nail holes prior to painting. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Someone told me there is a compound that is thicker then joint compound, that is used on wood. Any idea what they might be talking about?

If you went with OSB over drywall why are you worried about the cracks now? just calk them.

The OSB was used instead of drywall. How would mastic work?

Is this garage attached to your house? If so, what fire retardant material did you use?
