    The guy seems honest and upfront. I don't mind what he's doing although he is encouring Joe Bloggs to pick up a trowel and crack on himself in a way. Bet that cow casper giggles at his videos

    Tbf to the guy he seems like a decent chap and does add that his way is maybe not the way all spreads follow. He does leave it open to opinion.

    What do you fellas think of this guy, if that is u have ever watched him? Apparently retired through YT but does the odd job in the benefit of his channel. Seems a nice lad but is his channel fruitful or just DIY stuff?

    Mist Coat water / paint ratio

    I'd recommend McPherson's Eclipse. It's high permeability means it's ideal for mistcoating and it doesn't need watered down too much. You can buy it at Crown decorating centres and it's generally well priced. Cheaper than Dulux, Crown, Johnstones Trade etc.
