Rubbish
"It may cover cracks, but it does not hide them, unless of course they are hairline and you can hardly see them anyway. The cracks on my ceiling could be described as hairline, but can still be seen after two coats, especially with the light on. The paint did go surprisingly far, but does not take away the fact that it does not do what it says it should. Plus it is expensive. Waste of money..."

Doesn't do what it says on the tin!
"I must admit that I am starting to go off the brand name products. B&Q base coat for cracks and surfice inperfections did a better job than this Polycel Crack Free product. Are ceilings had hardly any cracks, and the ones we did have were less then a hair line. This product seems to highlight all your problem areas instead of covering them. Oh and the silk version is no better than the Matt. I advise to buy a cheap base coat of B&Q's allow to dry, apply another coat if needed and then pain with your desired colour. That's what we did on the ceiling in the next room which was a worse than the other and B&Q's products done miles bettter at a lot less cost."

Hmmmmmmm
"Hi all.
i bought this paint to cover various plasterboard movement cracks that have appeared on my downstairs ceilings. and unfortunatly did not fully live up to my expectations
The Good Points
Very Thick Paint, Doesnt Drip Much
Low Odor.
Seems To Dry Quickly
Doesnt Need Stirring (However I Still Did)
The Bad Points.
You use quite a lot of this with a roller, not sure if i actually met the coverage on the tin.
Whilst it covered up many hairline cracks, some of the larger cracks (i dont class them as much worse than hairline) are still there, however with reduced noticability.
The Price... Nuff Said
*** may not be the paint, however the ceiling has dried a different colour to the coving (they were both white)***
Overall has made an improvement to all cracks however they arnt hidden as stated.
But how much difference compared to normal matt emulsion i cannot say"

Terrible
"This product is supposed to cover hairline cracks in ceilings but I am afraid it does not even after 2 coats. A useless product."

Solved Problem Of My Damaged Ceiling
"I found this paint to be very easy to apply and went surprising far. Cracks all but disappeared. I used the silk version, which is more reflective and in my opinion, much better a camouflaging a damaged ceiling like mine. Avoided an expensive replacement ceiling as results are perfectly acceptable."

Like a facelift
"My bedroom ceiling has experienced some WWII bombing a few blocks away in Balham. Only a complete re-plaster would eliminate the appearance of spidery cracking...which wasn't an option. I also wasn't inspired to spend days and days with polyfilla, which wouldn't have done much anyway - so this seemed like a good idea. It goes on in 1 coat which is fantastic, and it really makes a difference - it doesn't make it a pristine surface, but it is a tangible improvement."
