Red Devil®, a leading manufacturer of building and home repair products, has extended the deadline for its Onetime® Wallscapes Challenge. Participants now have until March 1 to submit unique projects using Onetime® Lightweight Spackling, for a chance to win $5,000. Red Devil® knows spackling can be used for much more than repairing walls, so they created this challenge to celebrate consumers’ creative uses.
“I love using things in unexpected ways and that’s what this challenge is all about,” said Chelsea Lipford Wolf, host of Today’s Homeowner. “I can’t wait to be inspired by all of the great entries that come in.”
With the Onetime® Wallscapes Challenge, Red Devil® invites everyone to showcase the creative or innovative ways they can use Onetime® Lightweight Spackling for a chance to win great prizes. The first place winner will receive a $5,000 prize, while the second and third place winners will receive $2,500, and $1,000 respectively. To enter, individuals need to simply create one or more projects that use Onetime® Lightweight Spackling. A project doesn’t have to take a lot of time to develop or be considered “large scale,” to be a great submission. You can also submit multiple projects to increase your chances of winning. Then, take photos of your project(s) and submit them to Red Devil’s website. Submissions should not only show the finished project in photos or a video but also detail the steps taken to achieve the finished result.
Applicants have the freedom to be as creative or innovative as they want. “We are excited about the entries that have been submitted so far, as well as projects participants have told us they are working on,” said Alaina Jones, Red Devil® Marketing Manager. “We have seen our Onetime® Lightweight Spackling used to create a distressed effect on wood, while others have used it on pieces of canvas to create 3D art or have mixed it with paint to create a textured design on drywall. Others have used it to create a 3D landscape or food display.”
For those who would like to submit a project, but need assistance coming up with a project idea, the contest website offers inspiration. The public can also call the Challenge Tip Line at 918-513-3500 if they have questions or concerns about their project idea.

This premium, lightweight pre-mixed formula saves time and money. The versatile spackling is available in sizes from half pints to gallons, space-saving square tubs, and various handy kits.
