Chips on corners of the wall


Question what would you guys use to fill in small chips on the corners of the walls. Like how you get little chips and you can see the metal that they put on the corners when joining two pieces of sheetrock?

Assuming the chip isn't long, spackle should do fine.

Those corners are tough
If it was a big enough chip where I wouldn't want to just feather-sand it out and forgo the "filler" and just touch-up paint, I'd spot prime (<--this is important if metal is showing to keep it from just falling out again), and use a lightweight latex spackle
