Patched plaster not flush

by Rocco

Before signing up to your site I patched some holes with bonding but couldnt get the patched flush with the existing wall. They're only 1-2mm proud but I'm worried that will cause issues when trying to skim. Is my best option to try and chisel the plaster out again?
It appears to have set quite hard unfortunately.



Hi Rocco,
If it is only 1-2 mm then you'll probably be fine with this. Just put a slightly thicker 1st coat on. Though as a beginner I realise that you may want everything to be as easy as possible - so another option is to get a sharpish bolster or scraper and almost slice them back first.

Good luck
