A decorator said the whole ceing would need striping off and re-papering. Other than skimming the ceiling, I wondered if anyone had any other suggestions? Thank you

    You might be able to cut through the paper, pull it back and then re-glue it with wallpaper paste.

    If the surface of the plaster has blown. Cut and remove the paper and then back fill with a soft filler such as EasyFil (possibly using easyfil tape if required). The biggest problem however is that the paper looks to be textured, either that or it has been applied badly in the first place. Assuming that you don't want to see a flat section- you might be able to stipple the finish with a brush.

    The better finish would be to strip the ceiling- as suggested by your decorator.
