Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easier than expected Following on from the advice given by another reviewer I was amazed at how easy this product was to use. It has given a great finish to a terrible wall. I am an amateur DIY’er and have never done anything like this before but I’d definitely do it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great finish I brought this product to make good a wall before decorating. My options were lining paper, replaster or try this. After much research I went for this product and I'm glad I did. It's not easy to achieve a smooth finish, but with a few bits of extra equipment and time you can get a good finish. Extras I brought were: a bigger flexiable plaster application tool £8. Water spray bottle (I already had this in the house). Microfibre cloth (I too had this in the house). Mix the product well, and apply with a paint brush. Start at the top and work your way down the wall. Work in sections of about half a meter square, spray with a little water using the bottle and smooth level with the plaster tool. Keep going until the entire wall is done. I would try to do the wall without a break. Leave to set for around 4 hours, then wet the microfiber cloth and smooth out (in circular motion) any imperfections to ensure a smooth finish. Check the wall the next day, using a torch to see if there are any imperfections that need a further application. I won't lie this was hard work, but I'm very pleased with the result. Maybe practice on a small area, because there is definitely a knack to using this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Filled in patches and cracks on 100+ year old wall before papering. Much easier than anything I have used before and got a good finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great smooth finish I have been redecorating my 1930's house, and the walls are not exactly 'pristine.' So I put up lining paper.... and there were some tiny gaps at the joins. I used the Skim Filler on these gaps, left to dry then sanded them smooth. The result was so good, I decided to use emulsion directly on the lining paper. I also used it on the edges of the chunky shelves on either side of my chimney-breast. This concealed the joins and the shelves now look as if they were built-in with the chimney! I love this product. It has served my needs well and it so easy to sand to a very smooth finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hide the Artex Once I had scraped the bulk of the Artex in some cupboards, I painted on the Polycell - Polycell Finishing leaving a smooth surface, which was easy to sand further. I now use it as a fine surface to cover minor cracks. For large cracks I use a deep gap filler and once dry I use a scraper across the surface to remover surplus filler followed by Polycell Finishing, which is easier to sand and provides a better finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful I've used this a good deal over the last few months filling small/medium holes and cracks in my walls due to flaking plaster, holes previously drilled etc. I fill deep holes with plaster or some other filler, and then I find it works best for me to fill the remaining shallow hole a bit proud of the surface with the skim coat, using the tool provided or a filling knife, leave it overnight and then sand it down. I can't see the point of using a brush as suggested. Results are excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I brought this product after reading the reviews and i'm so pleased with the result. after stripping the wall paper in my kitchen I wanted to paint the a feature wall (my wall was in an ok-ish condition apart from chipped paint and a few light dents), I didn't want to have to employ a plaster so I brought this product, it was easy to use! I am now planning on doing the other four walls. The wall was completely dry in just 3 hours & ready to sand. However I wouldn't bother using the tool that came in the pot, I brought 'Polycell SmoothOver Tool Set Roller & Spreader' The spreader was perfect for the job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Having tried a few other similar products with really poor results, this one however and to be fair the whole poly fills range is amazing. The finish is unsurpassed by any of the other brands. If you need to finish off a wall this is the stuff to buy!!
