    Toilet leaked through kitchen ceiling, blown about 3 layers of paint off.

    I've bought toupret fine plaster (boxed) as the readymade polyfilla seams to shine through and hard to sand.

    I was thinking I need to provide stain blocker. No nonsense paint is cheapest as screw fix. Wasn't sure if people would recommend the spray or the tin?
    Or should I use another brand?

    Will I be okay filling over stain locker or will it need coat of emulsion for a key?

    I would replace the ceiling in damaged area, the plasterboard will be mush.

    How old is your house and do the ceilings have textured coatings or paint?
