    I honestly dont know. You may have been better posting in the plastering section instead. Thats an original username though

    definitely pva the walls first and patch cracks and breaks with fast set material. if you have loads of it in front of you the mark V sure makes it easier.

    my username was inspired by an old girlfriend-must have been like throwing a sausage into a bucket of joint cement:

    personally i would skim the walls with readymix filler as it sticks to anything..... where as your fast set filler if you put it on a painted surface it bosses,splits,falls off as theres nothing to stick to. even if you go to sand it youl see it falls off just dosnt stick we always have and always use readymix promix lite.jpg

    as for replacing internal and external corner tapes we pish this down a bit and apply it with a brush (now a corner roller as a wise man told me ) as it sticks perfect this bonds to painted surfaces then give it a skim of fast set and another skim of this and youl be sorted
