Hello natalie, the answer is yes with a couple of considerations:- in most cases it takes no more real time to do a complete wall, than a small area. this is based on the processes involved in a two coat plaster system that takes up to 2 1/2 hours to complete due to drying times. they say that "a patch is always a patch" plaster is a two coat system and is applied to a thickness of 1-3mm per coat. this would mean that it would have to tapper to the surrounding wall all around the repair. as to the paint blowing, l have encountered this on a few occasions and applied a white wash coat first so as to kill the suction from the filler, do this with a paint brush as a roller could pull the filler away from the wall. do hope this is of help.
Hello justin, have just read your question and would like to say that painting the ceiling with a white wash is designed to kill the suction from the artex as it appears to be very dry hence why the second coat cracked. another option is to use pva mixed with water and roller on. would like to know if the second coat of paint was watered-down, and at what ratio used for the first coat. please don't hesitate to contact me with any further questions. hope to talk soon. barry
