    Visible seams


    I patched a drywall hole in my house but the seams are still a bit visible. How do I solve this and get rid of the problem? What will I need (tools, equipment, etc.)? Any safety tips?

    "You can use drywall tape, just scratch over the compromised area using a knife, apply the filler and apply drywall tape after you wet it a little and then apply another coat of filler on top. Let it dry sand down and paint."
