Do feel it necessary to finish any of the rest of your skimming with a brush or can you do some of it with a trowel just cause you cant use a tool doesnt mean its sh1te.

good plasterers dont need a corner trowel, bring the wet angles in with your skimming trowel and 1 inch brush...

You have an awful lot to learn Cassie. It's not about what is possible, but what is faster whilst upholding good quality.

I know 1 or 2 spreads who want to be home by 1 everyday! Yeahhhh f**k it, we'll just throw it all on in one! No pride! They are the ones lacking confidence in not being able to do the plastering trade how it should be done! The plastering trade has gone to ****! So many rough guys out there! And one set wonders on whole rooms are a perfect example! Making a mockery of the trade! Stop taking short cuts and get the job done properly! I started my business at 20 and have had one quiet spell in my first year and a half. I'm 28 now. In work every day! To say my methods lack confidence is comical. Maybe try being a comedian??

Three pages on using a corner trowel? I didn't realise forming a corner with one to be as sharp as a hard angle was an art on its own.

If white angles is what you're after, then don't use your angle brush until 15 minutes after your final dry trowel. The plaster at this stage should be too hard to be affected by the bristles, use clean water.

The question was answered two days ago .
