    actually, all you need to do is go to Mitre 10 or Home Hardware or a Plaster Supplier and ask



    Seriously, the bits you'll need are few, but be prepared to make a bit of a mess until you know what you're doing .... I have done this a few times and it gets easier after a while

    BTW what suburb are you in? There are a number of great plasterer's supply companies in the northern suburbs.

    A filler putty, a putty knife to spread it, some sandpaper, and a bit of touch-up paint. All readily available at Bunnies. If the "dents" are actually holes, you may need a bit of mesh backing as well.
    Cheers,

    I would go to the new subdivisions armed with 1/2 doz stubbies adn find where a plasterer is working and ask for some cornice adhesive and some topcoat. They will scoff the stubbies and give you all you need.

    Bunnings a very expensive for plaster products. If you are near Bundoora or Glen Iris I will give you what you need and you wont need to bring the stubbies!

    I will be in Glen Iris until Wed.

    Then in Thomastown.

    Email me or PM me to arrange. Or my phone number is on my web site.

    Cheers Rod
