    can you use just the dynamite 11 wall paper by itself or do you need to add a dry hide paste of some sort? cuase it seems really strong to me without the dry paste just curous?

    thanks kyle

    dktaxidermy I'm on top of the dirt; how bad can it be?

    What a wonderfully long thread. lol. actually I'm wondering if anyone is still able to get the 111 wallpaper paste. Sherwin Williams sold it to a german company and my SW dealer is unable to get the dynamite 111 or the new name from the german company. A search on google reveals no source for it that is still viable.

    stay warm and keep your powder dry!

    I just purchased 2 one gallon containers of Dynamite 111 from Wall Paper Warehouse (inside Benjamin Moore store) in Salt Lake City.
    Its manufactured by Gardner-Gibson and runs about $11/gallon container. I don't do more than 4 or 5 heads a year so did not want to go the 5 gallon route.The manager is Cindy Daniels, 250 West 2100 South Salt Lake City UT 84115. PH# 801-485-4618 Fax 801 467-9761.
    She said there was also a Wallpaper Warehouse store in Sandy Utah that carries the Dynamite 111.
    Hope this helps.

    I've been using the Dynamite Heavy Duty Wall 111 Clay Covering Adhesive for 15 plus years...The company has changed names a few times over the years, but the product still seems to be the same. I can say the price has almost doubled in the last 5-7 years. It use to run about $27 for a five gallon bucket. The last bucket I just bought cost me $52. I use to add 10 lbs of Dextrine(mixed first) and a case of DAP Latex Caulk plus Silicone in Brilliant White(Contractors Pack). The caulk has also doubled in price as well. You will need a paint mixer of some sort that goes on your drill to mix the caulk and paste and an empty 5 gallon bucket to put one half of the paste in. Anyhow, I was getting BAD mold build up. Tried all sorts of things to curb it but no such luck. I completely quit using the Dextrin and my mold problem went away. Just don't leave anything in the bucket to contaminate it...i.e wood handled paint brush(use a plastic one). So bottom line, between the past and the caulk it makes great hide paste, easy clean up and great work time at a third of the cost of some of the actual "Hide Paste" the Supply Companies sell. I am still able to purchase the paste at Sherwin-Williams Paint Stores. You can get the caulk at Home Depot. Between the two(5 gallons of past and one case of caulk) it makes about seven gallons.

    Just a note to anyone actually trying to use this method. 1. No one in all of the stores in my area has this product anymore but after many, many, many tries I finally found a way to get it and still avoid shipping costs. I just called and had Sherwin Williams order it since they Cary it online and then I picked it up from the store.
  8. I just went to the Sherwin Williams in town and they had 5gallons of dynamite 111 that was out dated. He shook it up and it looked just like new. So I got it for 20 bucks. Just like Black Friday....lol

  12. any problem with mixing dynamite 111 with just dry powder clay to thicken it up? I heard it might mold on you

    We are adding McKenzies powdered hide paste not plain dry clay...is that something new you are speaking of you have heard elsewhere?

    Keep it cool
  15. Thanks Mike, I just got my 5 gallon of Dynamite Heavy Duty Wall 111 Clay Covering Adhesive from Sherwin Williams.

    If you set up an account with Sherwin Williams you get 10% off anything you buy. It cost me $10.34 a gallon X 5 = $55.06 out the door with the discount.
