How to fix a dent in the wall



as you can see it’s not really cracked just bent in. how do i fix this? i see a lot for cracked walls but i’m just making sure there’s not a different process. 


so it’s just pushed in, like you can feel the wall behind it there’s no hole. my butt pushed it in while moving a bed.

Re: How to fix a dent in the wall

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @unspicedcabbage. It's fantastic to have you join us, and many thanks for your question.

You could skim coat the area with Gyprock CSR 2kg Rapid Patch Filler. It would be best to do so gradually with several coats instead of one thick application. The other option is to cut out the affected section and replace it with a new board. If the damage is not too deep, I suggest you try the filler, and if it doesn't work out, you can always replace the piece with a plaster repair panel.
