You may have to get a ladder, assuming you don't have one tall enough. You could decorate the rest of the wall with more smoothie but painting would probably be the best bet. :) If you do paint, test on some lower stains first and give them at least a day to see if the stains bleed through the paint. It would be safer to just use some Kilz primer to seal ...

Sand it a bit and paint over it. Feather out the edges. Should work just fine.

Well first of all it would be really helpful if we could see the picture. But from what I heard there are two possible scenarios: the patch is flat with the rest of the wall. In this case you should apply 2,3 or maybe even more layers of smoothing primer, and then sand it off with extra fine sand paper; also you can apply last layer or two on the surrounding ...

You're still going to have some irregularities from the mud but if you feather it out it's less noticeable. Just mud the outside of the patch for now. Do multiple light coats until you get out to a 12" taping knife. That should leave a ...

As you apply the paint with a brush/roller/pad, the physical orientation of those bits (scientific term) is determined, at least in part, by the ...

Ooh. this problem is one not easily answered without more info: Heat Blisters: Paint bubbles can show up pretty quickly, from within a few hours to a few days after application. The blisters are only in the top coat of paint and appear most often in oil-based paint. A quick rise in temperature, like sunlight shining directly on the newly painted wood, ...

After staining give a coat of clear finish, sanding it with a fine sandpaper (400G) to remove any raised grain or any dust that may have settled onto the drying finish. This will give you a good base to add your paint and the sanded surface will give it good adhesion. Steel wool has its purpose, but I would not use it here. That's only my opinion. My ...
