    how long does it take

    Mate it takes as long as it takes, and the next time it wont take as long. Take your time, speed comes with experience and practise. The more you do the better you get and quicker. Just concentrate on getting a good finish on the wall your working on and then start another. Then maybe put on a...

    (Plastering Tool) or not......

    Re: trowhawk or not...... But it will never ever replace a hawk and thats the bottom line.

    (Plastering Tool) or not......

    Re: trowhawk or not...... Dont think it will catch on tbh. It looks a good thing in the video, but then again so did the blade runner!!! Think the hawk is here to stay, you can get so much more muck on a hawk for a start.

    how to repair plaster over old laths

    artex

    WBA will be fine. Depending on how thick the artex is tells me if i 2 or 3 coat it. 3 coats cuts out any chances of the artex showing through. If you dont normally skim atrex 3 coats is the way i would go! Some spreads put a tight coat of bonding on then 2 coat it, but to me that takes to long...
