    Hi All,

    A while ago we had a leak from the bathroom which is directly above the kitchen. After it dried out I scraped the flaky paint off the affected areas and used Zinsser BIN on it. Now I'm left with a slightly different level between the good ceiling paint and where I've scraped the damaged parts off. How do I level it off so I can give the whole ceiling a repaint?

    Cheers
    Daz

    can I use Polyfilla? It's such a thin difference I was worried that Polyfilla would pull out when sanding.
