Filling wood panel nail holes
 
I am about to start painting my new house. However, there is at least a fifty nail or screw holes in the ceiling and the walls. The ceiling is a paneling of some sort (this is a mobile home) and the walls are wood paneling. What's the best way to prep the walls and ceiling before paint?

prepping wood paneling
 
The last project I finished involved painting over some wood paneling that had graffiti carved into it with a knife. This is what I used:

A little dab of that stuff, applied and smoothed over with a putty knife worked wonders. The package says you don't have to sand it, but I did anyway just to be safe. Now that the wall is painted, I can't even find that spot anymore.
