Drys out to quickly and you have to constantly re wet it. Colour is to dark and takes several coats to cover with lighter paints. Incredibly expensive for what’s just a filler. On the plus side it rubs down easily although you need to wear a mask.

Don't bother.

Waste of money.

At the moment I am considering pulling it all off the wall and starting from scratch - it really is that bad. It doesn't stick to the walls, so when you are trying to smooth it over great clumps of it pull away from the wall. It isn't dry two days later (in warm dry conditions) and it is extremely crumbly when it does dry and I am not convinced that it is going to stay on the wall for very long.

If you want a quick and easy solution to bumpy walls then get the the Polyfilla version of this. It is, admittedly, twice the price, but you will probably use half the quantity - and it actually works. I have used it before and made the mistake of thinking that this cheaper version might be as good. It isn't.

If you want a cheap solution to bumpy walls then go for a finishing plaster that is designed to bond to already painted walls. This will easier to use and will a fraction of the price - you just have to mix it with water - which is hardly difficult.

Also the trouble with any ready mixed product (including the Polyfilla version) is that once you open the tub it starts to dry. Which is fine if you are going to use it all in one go - but if you put half a tub of something like this away to use another time, even if its only a few days later, when you come back to it the mixture will have started to dry and will have lumps in it - which with some products won't matter that much, but with a wall smoothing paste that's a bit of a prohibitive problem.

But really - stay away form this. It's rubbish,

worst product I ever seen

Absolutely useless. That products should be removed from shelf. The only surface it sticks to is the floor. Do not buy it !!!!
It's a pity I can't give negative -10 rating.

This smoothover was more work than it was worth. Thought it might have been as good as the Difficult to apply, most lands on the floor and Dries grey. not worth the hassle
