    New plasterboard, breaks and paper tears from installation

    You should be using tapered edge plasterboards for taping & jointing. You’ll end up with a bump at every joint which will be exaggerated under certain lighting conditions. You should feather your joints out even further because of this. I suggest you visit YouTube for a few tips. Good luck.

    Best way to change a curved vaulted ceiling to a straight edged one.

    Cut it back with a multitool, re board with 15mm board which should be the same thickness as the original 12.5 and skim, tape and joint it using inverted Level line tape at the apex.

    Remove lining paper off lath and plaster walls and ceilings and re-plaster?

    That’s because you can’t see f**k all from them.

    How to newly plaster walls after ceilings have been painted..?

    Get your Mrs to hold an umbrella above your trowel as you plaster, or stop a few inches short and put a wallpaper border around. Seen some nice Buzz Lightyear ones in B&Q. (Borders, not umbrellas) Hope this helps.

    Read the tape, cut the board, screw it up. How hard is it?

    Can plaster dry through the mist coat.

    Depends what you used. If you used vinyl emulsion, then you will trap moisture in.
