    LW1 render advice needed!

    I have just done another small job using LW1 used 10mm beads , 4 to 5 mum serrated scrim coat and them second pass 3mm over the beads.

    Re-doing Krend.

    Mix the R7 with HP12 and make a stipple coat and allow to dry , just enough to give you a key within your 10/12mm stop beads
