Thanks Pete. It's a porcelain sink I installed twelve years ago. The plumbers putty I used at the time is still holding up fine, it is the pop-up mechanism that wore out. So I got a replacement...

I'm guessing that these are not the dimpled edges of the drywall? If that's the case, you may need to feather out another 12 - 15 inches or more on each side. Use a 12 inch knife to skim coat.
