I used to get nervous, but not so often now as I’ve learned to get over most problems. Plaster smells fear, so don’t get monkey brained if you’re getting stressed and it’s going off quicker than you’d like. Stay focused. Worst case scenario, you’ll have to slap another coat on and miss coronation st.

sponge float can save the day.

I’m not a plasterer btw, just a chancer
@Danny That imoji please ffs
 
hi gang, worked with a 35 yr experienced plasterer for 1.5yrs and regularly practise on wall in spare room. can get a smooth wall now. been told I'm at a standard were I can earn money. any tips on how you got over your nerves before your 1st paid job I'm excited but bloody nervous. cheers.
Just relax and engage with the customer, sheet up and keep everything clean and tidy. Don’t over do it and do what you can handle! Speed comes with experience. Good luck

Confidence is king with plastering don't beat yourself mentally before you start it'll go wrong really fast just dismiss any nerves and do it
