Was wondering if I could get some advice.
I have had to form internal curves on 6 ceilings with bonding coat.
I see on the bag it says not to use on dry undercoats but if I pva the bonding is it ok to use board finish over the treated bonding? As then its a low suction background?
Cheers for the help guys.
Just relieved its not just me. Think Ill pick up some board finish when I can and give that a shot. Will take some persuading with some of the builders I plaster for though. Stuck in there old ways most of the time with how they like things done :rolleyes:
A few examples.
The camera is making the skim look darker than what it actually so it is defining the marks more than what the actually are like.

Like I said its like its stained the surface of the plaster.
It cannot be felt or...
Glad its not just me!
Thought the water had just gotten thicker down here in the Devon or something ;)

Cheers for your replies.
Just swear I never use to get them and its just recently started happening, but like you say, if everyone is happy then happy days. It just looks s**t.

Anyone used Lime solo one coat plaster before? Never used it before but had to price a barn conversion and the clients want this used. f**k nos why as its on board anyways. Think its just for the authentic look
