    Hi all,

    I'm trying to fill and paint over a hairline crack in my wall but I'm having an issues whereby however much filler I use, it seems to dry below the level of the surrounding plaster. I assume its shrinkage?

    I've tried both No Nonsense and EasiFill and both dry the same. Also tried wetting the plaster beforehand. Should I be PVA'ing the crack first?

    Any help would be gratefully received
