Filling cracks and dents


Even with a new lick of paint, if walls have cracks and dents in them, they can look knocked about. Hairline cracks around doors and windows, holes in the wall from old picture nails, and dents from bumping furniture (or clumsy teens) are simply part of the wear and tear of life. But they’re pretty unsightly all the same. The good news is that making your walls smooth again is a fairly easy task, as long as you apply the same principle as you would to sport – if you want to win, you’ve got to do the prep.

Smoothing out small cracks and filling holes in interior walls is easy with Selleys No More Cracks. Now you can repair cracks, chips and shallow surface dents in a jiffy. It’s easy to sand back and can be spread over large surfaces for speedy preparation before applying paint.

DIY TIPS

  1. Make sure the surface is clean, dry and free of loose or powdery material.
  2. Use a scraper or trowel to spread a thin layer of Selleys No More Cracks.
  3. Scrape off excess filler to minimise sanding. For a perfect finish, feather the edge to merge with the wall.
  4. Allow to dry for 2 to 3 hours, depending on humidity.
  5. Sand lightly with fine sand paper.
  6. For best results, apply an undercoat before painting with topcoat.
