I'm decorating a room on a non existent budget and have a ceiling that has cracked plaster with wallpaper on it which has torn. I can't afford to have it replastered and don't have time to strip it etc. Therefore I wondered if anyone has any tips for covering up the cracked parts or fixing it somehow... Polyfilla over the top doesn't appear to have worked (see picture). I did consider cutting out the cracked paper area but am unsure if this will cause the plaster to fall off completely... Maybe tape would work?
See photos to see what I'm dealing with. Lighter is for scale!!
