filling, sanding, painting

Unlike plastering, when walls are filled, only minor unevenness or plaster breakouts are leveled out or eliminated. Elegance-bau batha provides recommendations for conventional and specially developed fillers, explanations of the associated quality levels, and practical user tips.

Before you re-paper the wall, repair hairline cracks, old drill holes and other plastering defects with fine filler. Now let it dry thoroughly for at least twelve hours and then sand the repaired areas thoroughly to ensure invisible transitions. A hand sander with an interchangeable grid from the hardware store will be useful for this. If you would like to simply paint the wall, particularly thorough sanding is necessary. If you want to avoid this and still enjoy extremely smooth walls, you should use a so-called painter's fleece. This is applied to the wall like wallpaper, but is virtually invisible after painting and looks like a wonderfully smooth plastered wall. If you're going to be wallpapering conventionally again, you should choose non-woven wallpaper, as it can be removed very easily and without leaving a trace - carefully pulling on both corners of a strip is completely sufficient. Very practical the next time you move or if you no longer like the motif. If you want to put paper-based wallpaper on the wall again, apply a so-called changing primer beforehand to make it easier the next time you remove the wallpaper.
