Patching a [small] Hole

Postby IGGt » Sat Jun 23, 2012 3:41 pm

Hi, in the course of fixing a light fitting on the ceiling, I have managed to damage some of the plaster, so that there is now a small hole (apx 1 inch square) by the side of my light fitting.

What is the easiest way to fill the hole? On a wall I would just use filler and build up various layers, but I don't think that'll work on a ceiling, as it would probably just drip out. Also it's right next to the light fitting, so don't really want to use anything wet.

for that size hole you can use polyfiller in a tube,just squirt it in and smooth it over,Just switch off the fuse for safety.
