    Why do I keep getting scuffs and chips in my Vanition plaster Finnish

    Hard to see from pic but there are definitely raised edges. Agree with Plas1 it's not something you can just copy from a video and do it. Like the colour though

    Sea fishing off almwych

    Other than catching Mackerel for bait, the only thing caught that could be eaten was thrown back in for being a bit small. So it was fish and chips for 8 ordered from local chippy :X3:

    Render on timber?

    Built a garden room. Wrapping walls and ceiling with 8x2 T&G moisture resistant floor sheets. Roof is getting GRP. Originally was going to clad the walls with timber but our peg now likes render. So can render be applied directly to the wood with a grit primer and mesh or is it a no go. Open to...

    No changes to anything in the room.conditions as they have been for years. Gable end wall on the other side of it and it's a 90's build house. If its moisture getting into the mortar line somehow I would have thought it would start at top or bottom due to leak or damp and you would start to...

    So it's settled then..

    Always called it a hand board. Solely down to my beginning that's what everyone else called it. Well more than it was called a hawk. I always assumed the name hawk came because you hold it the same way you would use your arm for a perch when calling your hawk in falconry. Now I cant get Billy...

    Venetian plastering

    Got no interest in all the arguing. I am quite passionate about venetian plaster and like others I have paid to learn properly then spent years continuing it so here's some advise regarding the "will it stick?" question. It might, but using the correct primer that marrys up to that...

    Wetroom fail... Advice

    Looks like it has failed where the micro cement meets the tile. This is the weakest spot and most likely to fail area. The water by now is behind the micro cement depending what the sub strate is that the micro cement is on too. It's a waste of time trying to dry it out as you would be waiting...

    White marmarino fine

    Ideally wherever you but your marmorino from. Most suppliers have toners or pigment to match their products

    Venitian plaster trowel case?

    I use a tri fibre case. Comes with squared foam insert top and bottom. Works well for all my Venetian trowel and I keep super flex in there too. Had it a few years and can't find my particular case on the website but it was about 50 quid

    External micro cement sealers

    Sounds like the sealer doesn't have UV stability mate. A lot of sealers don't. All PU sealers are plastic in effect and can't have UVstability

    Over tiles

    Done it before on my own stuff and never had a problem. Just because something isn't the noŕm doesn't mean it's wrong. The description on that grit clearly states it can go onto ceramics tiles. I've messed around testing and it will even go on glass and you can then plaster on that too. Any old...

    Venetian Suppliers/Training

    You can be taught a finish like this. Tough to pinpoint as it's a picture but it looks like a fine grained marmorino. Or possibly a liquid product such as cadoro

    Micro cement

    It's worth it if you can get the work marra. Regardless of money it's a nice change. Cleaner working environment and more relaxed. Micro cement is easier than Venetian too. If you make an error it can be sanded and polished a lot easier

    Fair one. It does look a lot better than in pictures. It's quite dark but that's what my missus wants. The white sink and toilet should stand out nicely

    I have some micro cement questions.

    Also in terms of hardness it gets used on floors so this may answer your question

    I have some micro cement questions.

    It would be the perfect option for your needs. Some are actually waterproof without the sealer however it protects the colour in the product ad without the sealer the colour would fade over time. Micro is hard wearing and will take a knock. Price wise depends quite a lot on product, finishand...
