    i have had to put up a sheet of 1800 x 900 plasterboard on my ceiling, to replace the damaged one when i put a hole through it from above.

    Would gyproc easi fill be suitable for a plasterboard this size, or should i use multifinish?

    I assume gyproc easifill is easier to feather in?

    cheers

  3. multifinish. scrape the old surrounding plaster back to enable you to scrim the joint before skimming and feathering in.
    pva the scraped back area to allow the tape to ‘stick’ and reduce suction.
     
  4. what’s the fascination with easifill on here. it’s crap.

    How would I feather it in to the boards either side? Would I have to pva a foot or so either side and then sand it off after?
     
  6. neat pva 18 “ all round and feather it in . depending on how good your skimming skills are, if you expect to be sanding anyway you may as well use filler.
