Filled light switches but wall not smooth

Postby b274 » Sun Mar 21, 2021 8:37 pm

Hello all!

I filled x2 light switch's in my living room with expanding foam then pollyfiller. The finish isn't smooth though, any advice how I can make it smoother?

Put a narrow strip of lining paper lengthways to 'blend' it in?

I intend to paint the room, directly over the existing wallpaper.

Please see photos, thank you in advance!

Hi b274
Just a matter of sanding down the filler.
