Moreover, can you smooth out plaster walls?
Fortunately, there are ways to smooth out those bumps without spending hours or days sanding down the wall. Homeowners can use RhinoLite or Plascon's Finishing Plaster, which allows them to apply a skim coat to a textured wall to give it that smooth finish.
Subsequently, question is, how do you remove texture from plaster walls? If the area was texturized with joint compound, water and a drywall knife can generally remove most of the texture. Continue with gentle scraping to remove the texture. If the texture was created with plaster, water won't help and you can continue to the next step. Gently sand the surface of the wall with sandpaper.
People also ask, how do you hide imperfections in plaster walls?
Pour a small amount of textured paint into a plastic bucket. Use a 2- to 3-inch paintbrush to apply paint around the edges of plaster surfaces. Apply textured paint to the remainder of the surfaces with a roller. Use a series of overlapping, random strokes.
How do you fix uneven plaster walls?
