Don't take this the wrong way but you all make me laugh when you go on about 2 coat is better than 1 Do you think just because you 2 coat lads carry a special wand that makes it come out perfect ? some lads 1 coat mono by hand and some lads 2 coat hardwall.....wake up it's got nothing to do with how many coats you put on
Mp finish to spec is two coat by hand and one coat by machineWe use the Knauf plaster at work and its meant to go on in one coat so if the plaster is a white colour its probably the same stuff and that's why. All we do is coat the beads and the joints then one coat the lot.
did u try the mp curry?
