Looking for name/brand of plaster product

Hi all,

You know that white stuff that gets sprayed onto walls and ceilings and leaves that rough pebbled surface (which is awesome by the way as an impromptu back scratcher :>)

Does anyone know what is the name of this stuff? I want to get some to patch a couple of holes left from picture hangers that have been moved. These were heavy pictures so the holes are larger and I'm not interested in painting the entire wall which is otherwise unmarked just to fill in and mask over a small hole.

Thanks

In German it's called 'Weissputz' but in Vaud I have no idea.

Head down to your nearest bauhaus and they'll surely be able to help.

You may have to fill the holes with spakfilla and then glue a sheet of weissputz on top. I've taken a few walls down here and the weissputz were glued on in paper like sheets.

I'll ask at work tomorrow and let you know. Otherwise you could do a search on EF with the word handyman and then send a couple of PM's out...

Crépi (above) is more of the rough surface you have on the wall.

To FILL in holes, you need to buy a tube of Molto (Brand name) Reparatur Moltofill. "Mastic fini pour l'intéreur."

You squeeze this into the hole then try to stipple it using the end of a small spoon or something similar to match the crépi.

You can find this product at any of the do-it stores (Migros, Coop, Hornbach, Jumbo, Obi etc.)

Thanks everyone. I've got the stuff to fill in the holes as I've also moved a wall or two around doing remodeling, but needed the name of the spray on stuff for the top coat and now I know.
