Yeah,it's a fairly simple job. Just scrim the edges,and apply a few coats of easifil and sand nice and smooth.If you've a fairly wide spreader it'll make life easier as you can smooth it over in a single pass.

Many thanks for the reply! When you say scrim the edges do you mean put the tape to cover the gap completley? Im confused as surely this would leave a bump in the plaster and i wouldn't get it level after sanding? Sorry if its a stupid question....

You need to tape over the new/old transition 50/50. You need to fill just proud of the finished wall and feather it back. It's fairly easy to do on a patch and you can add a bit more filler if you rub it back too much.

Might help to wet the edge of the filler knife to get a perfect surface.

Tape and filling will always crack, and you need to go a long way to feather that out without any roughness.

Cut the plaster back a couple of inches all round, bond the thick gaps, scrim the joints all round then skim, wet all edges with pva then trowel hard, to finish level with existing.
