Problem using Elafib scrim

Well put the scrim on wall took some getting use to, think i could do better next time. It is overlapping on ceiling but not half way, had room length to do but quiet happy,

i used emulsion paint, problem i have is small part of the plaster is bare, where i had to strip paint because it was cracking otherwise known as crazing paint, i painted with emulsion then stuck scrim on. Its dried well, on the same wall there been quiet a bit of fine surface filling where i go around with a pencil marking imperfections, then fill with touprett fine surface filler.

Would it be wise to paint that wall with bulls eye once skimed over scrim,to seal everything.

Next time the small patch of bare plaster would have it been wise to spot prime with bulls eye first then allow to dry then put emulsion on or have i done it right, al in all pleased. :slight_smile:
