    Loads of tiny holes all over wall. Its not smooth perfect, but it will be fine for me. Just want to make sure once wall is all painted I wont see these repair areas coming though, as there is alot of them ! I used Jetcem Quick Set Patching Plaster.

    I will be doing a mist coat with budget matt emulsion. Then I am finishing with Diamond Trade Matt, prob 2 coats. Will this be sufficient or should I be putting something else on before hand??

    Thanks in advance

    Provided the filler product used is actually plaster, what you suggest should be fine.

    If the filler is a plastic based material as typically found in ready mixed fillers, it will show through the paint.

    I've never used that but don't see any reason why doing what you suggest wouldn't work well. Just be prepared for an extra topcoat because sometimes patched walls need it.
