started a job today reskimming a flat above a pub, happy days!

however..... its a very old place (1700s) beams etc, and the customer wants the reskim to be in keeping with the "character" of the place, in other words really lumpy and uneven.

prepped the whole flat and started skimming, had a real nightmare getting trowel marks out due to uneveness of it all, ended up with best brush finish over alot of it. customer happy but wondered if anyone had any tips or hints for this sort of job?  

cheers

Sounds like you've got your hands full mate, could you not use an 11" trowel instead of a 14/13" one im guessing
