In addition to professional ready-to-use repair kits, which are mostly made on a plaster basis, there are liquid woodchip as a finished product. However, many people choose tried and tested "home remedies" to repair their woodchip wallpaper. These include chalk, small animal litter, wood flour and flour paste.
