i’m a glazier and been thinking about taking up spreading recently, i can just about plaster a wall to a okayish standard. if i was to take it up what trowels and size do people recommend?
to get more experience i was thinking about booking a course for 5 days for £500 to get the skills and knack of it and learn all the nooks and krannys.
OR
shall i build a timber frame in my garden with a sheet of ply as a backboard and fix some plasterboard up and start spreading for practice??
thanks.
