Forum Title: Stripped old coats from mud, repairing the gouges?
Only I'm on my second ever job. I was faced with a wall in bad condition which had multiple coats over the years. So I painstakingly stripped off the paint with my 5 in 1 tool. Of course, in the process I've left quite a few gouges in the mud. Just wondering the best process for this wall now. I guess it's use a filler for the gouges and sand level. I'm concerned that I may not get all the dents and hollows. Would using a Zinsser product be useful, such as Gardz or 123? Reason I say Zinsser is that its readily available.in my area. Cheers!
