I'm helping my daughter to get her new house into a liveable state quickly.

My query refers to the gloss paint on the top surface of the stair skirting board. It looks as if it had been squeezed out of a tube. It has bumps and undulations.

The vertical side of the skirting board is OK.

Maybe later, we can use a heat gun, but we're not experts so that might take a whole day (more?) that we can't spare.

As a temporary fix, is it possible to put a layer of wood filler on top of the current gloss paint, and then smooth and sand the filler?

So the basic general question is: Does wood filler stick to gloss paint?

If not, what other quick solutions could I try? The results cannot be any worse than they are now :-)

Not a good idea, not suitable to adhere to gloss and expensive to buy, would be better off getting a small sander (mouse palm sander with hook and loop sheets) set you back about £20 and useful for next jobs.
