    Plastering for beginners YouTube

    Should be. YouTube skimmers posting ads on Gumtree and delivering mince meat for a price.

    Plastering for beginners YouTube

    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

    Plastering for beginners YouTube

    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.

    Grey bonding

    Had the pink gear for a while but started a 30m2 cieling today and had a few areas to bond out and got hit with the grey s**t. I hate it. Hangs forever and gritty as f**k. Can't even flatten after laying on as it rips like a f**k*r. Is it a regional thing? I'm in the West of Scotland and we...

    Plastering for beginners YouTube

    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.

    Looking for labouring/trainee/apprenticeship role in Ayrshire or Glasgow

    Looking for a start in Ayrshire/Glasgow

    Looking for an apprenticeship anywhere in North or East Ayrshire or Glasgow. Already done some basic plastering and fell in love with it. Hard working and determined, also a bit of a perfectionist which I assume is a favourable attribute in the trade haha. Cheers for any help.

    Gaps under window

    Alright lads. The guy that was in the house before us was a bit of a cowboy and, among other things, has managed to ruin some wall under the window. I've done some very basic plastering at college in a painting and decorating course and plan on filling it up. What is the best stuff to use...
