Hairline crack on the ceiling

Posted by Arzu Anderson, on
How to fix a hairline crack on the ceiling? I used Easifill filler but crack appeared again after I painted it. I'm not sure what I need to do next. Please help!!

Hi you will need to make the crack a bit wider by grooving it out with the corner of a scraping knife then make the edge smooth with sandpaper etc then re fill the crack and smooth it / sand it flat etc. Then you can repaint.

What would you like to do now?
