Will primer hide small imperfections in a plaster job?
I am patching an old ceiling fan, and since its a ceiling it's very hard to work on it + I am trying to keep the area as clean as possible while working. I got it to a point where it's mostly smooth. I can see small imperfections but nothing major. When I prime, will it mostly hide small imperfections?

Hard to really see in the pic, but here is the patch job:

by the looks of that picture i would say no , but it depends on how hard you look at it after and what level of lighting hits it ..

don't they have ladders up there in Canada Red?

they make sticks with pads for sanding screen. You can tape as long of a pole onto it you need.:jester:

here is one that apparently hooks up to your vacuum as well

Oh I was on a ladder, but having the face up all the time gets hard on the neck and harder to see what you're doing. A pole would probably have went better though.
