Hello,

I'm after some advice on plastering my hallway ceiling that's curved. Any tools or techniques for plastering those curves would be appreciated!

I'm not a professional plasterer but I have been plastering for about five years in my own time. I can get a good finish but I'm not that fast. I've done a few curves in alcoves but it's mainly walls and ceilings.

If you're unsure of yourself and determined not to pay a plasterer then skim it best you can and then get a tub of premixed boarders shite.

Overskim very thin and sand it.

It's an inelegant solution but it will look just fine.
