    You need to apply stain block or oil based undercoat. Then emulsion.

    As long as your fill has been sanded down and flat.

    Not sure how your managed to get that like it?

    Rake out cracks with old screwdriver or stanley knife.

    Pva seal 3-1

    Fill and when set fill again. Second fill should be 50mm either side of crack and damp sponge around edges to feather out.

    Sand with 180g but use block of wood or sanding blocks so it's flat.

    Prime with acrylic primer undercoat with 20% water and mini roller and leave for 5h hours to dry off

    Only paint when happy it's good..

    Switch to toupret powder. Standard stuff in red box from sf it toolstation. Get your summer fan out as will drastically increase drying times from 6h to about 1h. Mix small amounts.
