    First time DIY'er looking to get some muck on my walls.

    Stick with the grit if you've not plastered before it will be easier with the timing ,will give u more time to get across the wall and get a clean trowel for it don't use a dirty trowel good clean one and keep it clean

    That's great grounzero, small room, best place to start . So firstly apply the pregrit to all the walls in a very thick coat using a brush as u get proper coverage. I think we should start with a wall first to get the hang of using hawk and trowel. Pick a flat wall to begin with get your...
