I have skimmed a few walls in my house that come up good so i decided to try my ceiling the room is big and was to much for me. So i done the best i could. Only today it looks a mess uneven holes and smear marks. Can i go over this with some thing else or would i have to take it down. Also if i can sand it could i just fill the craters with multi finish. Thanks.
 
give it a coat of paint and the see how it looks :D I would not skim it again as you probably wont make it any better...

Get a sanding block and some easi fil and take your time and you can make it look perfect again :D

If you decide for sanding make sure you have the right machine for it. Heard them festool are the best.

@Marshy did give you a solution. Nothing you do to fix the ceiling will give as good a finish as a time served plasterer

Paint it and try skimming it again then,
Only thing is if you couldn't get round it first time probably won't be able to get round it at second attempt.
I not being funny just honest

Rip it all down only this time when you have the boards leaning against the wall, cut them to size and skim them all while their not on the ceiling. That way you'll get a nice finish then screw them all up :reloco:

I agree with marshy but don't take it to heart.
This is a forum and sometime we don't like to here the truth.
We all have all made a bit of a mess of something in our learning time.
So my advice is stand up brush off and move on to the next challange
