    Hi all

    Can anyone recommend a filler for internal walls that can be sanded down to a very smooth printable surface.

    I'm hoping there may be a trade product better than pollyfilla?

    Thanks

    Stripped a wall, there was paint underneath that half came off. Looked like Tommy Lee Jones face.

    Filled all the holes and scratches. Feathered edges.

    Cannot tell. Great stuff. Only good for 1 or 2mm deep or it sinks, but, deeper holes require their normal filler.

    Way better than cheap filler.

    It kinda depends on your tolerances.

    The Toupret fillers are a cut above the likes of Tetrion or Polyfiller powder based fillers (in the main) but any filler that is slightly harder or softer than the existing emulsion will leave a dent or ridge.

    I haven't used the particular filler recommended by Jacko though.

    Part of the secret is using the right grade of abrasive. The mesh papers (eg Abranet) are often better than standard papers

    I use Easifill from time to time but it is incredibly soft, ie not resistant to knocks. Very easy to sand though.
