Polycell Trade Polyfilla Interior Filler 2kg
Just a wee tip from a decorator with 40 yrs experience: Dont add water to the filler. Place a small amount of water in a bowl or bucket and add the filler to the water, a little at a time until you get a smooth, lump free mix.
As for my opinion of polyfilla. Top product by far but price not justified but we are nowpaying Â£60 for 10 lts of Trade emulsion!!! Total rip-off on most decorating products unfortunately. Anyway, polyfilla is perfect for flushing off "hot" surfaces such as bare plaster and filling substrates such as size colour. It does not thicken on contact which allows you to smooth off with your trowel or filling knife before it goes off. It also sands down to a smooth finish. Highly recommend.

More costly but worth it.
Very easy to mix to your required consistency by adding just a small amount of water each time and working in. Goes on very nicely, sticks well and very good to work with. Feathers out well any over lapping plaster.Can sand down after about an hour. More expensive than most but in my opinion its worth it, you get what you pay for. Well in this case any way!

Trade Interior Filler
All of the above posts, good filler for decorating. Handy it comes in two smaller bags in the box. Glosses well without primer and good adhesion to base and paint, always have it in my box of fillers. Buy it

Much better value than buying any pre-mixed stuff and easier to apply.
I am a moderate DIYer and found this v easy to work with. Mixed according to instructions as supplied, and got the consistancy of cream. Applied, and smoothed off.
Dried and the surface is very smooth and hasn't cracked. I didn't even need to sand it off, as it was smooth as.
