    Was filling some screw pops in a cupboard the other day. As a bit of a test run. Thought I'd try filling with multi finish. I exposed the screw heads, tightened them up. Then diluted pva'd the area, let it dry. Then diluted pva'd the area and filled with multi finish while still tacky.

    I can see how you get a better finish with easi fill as the multi finish doesn't work as easy with a filler knife/scraper.

    What method do all you use? If using easi fill do you still use the pva method I used above?

    Cheers
