Painting Over Polyfilla but Marks are Still Clearly Visible?

Postby phate06 » Mon May 21, 2018 9:26 am

Good Morning all,

I'm new to the forums so Hi to everyone.

My first of what will probably be many DIY related questions - I have used Polyfilla to fix holes in my brick walls where pictures used to be, TV Bracket etc..., but once it is dry and sanded down so it is flush, and painted over you can clearly see the filler.

Is there a way for it not to be so obvious that the filler is there

Thank you

Polyfilla is rubbish filler nowadays use easifil or toupret, rub down and apply stain block to sanded down filler and the emulsion your wall.
