    HI all
    I know this is a stupid qustion but do I have to PVA before repairing a patch of plaster which has blown off wall due to a leak (which is now repaired).
    The patch is about 8inch square.
    Now for the next stupid question if the answer to first question is yes can I use childrens PVA glue?
    Sorry for silly questions but really need advice
    Thanks

    Just make sure the 'blown area is as localised as u think. Its unusual for such a small area of plaster to blow
