Got mine from Walls&ceiling. £11 a bag. Little pricey I know but rather pay that than wait around for gear to start turning up.

Yeh tried today a few comments on it

Easier to apply n spreads nice
Put first on reasonable flat
Don’t bother flatten first coat
I use same mix as stuff stays alive for ever- 45 mins
2nd coat on
Possibly another flatten to tidy
But that’s it
Leave to dry ,which seems forever
N then trowel up with wAter brush for two trowels
Takes forever to go off

That was after about hour n 3/4 to 2 hours going a full colour ,b4 u can get a decent finish out of it n then u can filll and take lines out etc
Because just tears the 2nd coat off if u jump on it earlier

Was you informed of which day it would be delivered on pal ?
Nah, they told me they would email with an exact delivery date but all I got was a phone call from driver when he was 10mins away, tbh I’ve found the delivery side of things a bit of a nightmare, always had to chase it up.

Reading comments on the YouTube vid leave first coat to grey over /dry. N then 2nd coat the vid doesn’t help on how to use

I'm absolutely convinced that this is rebadged Knauf finish. It looks and appears to perform just like it. If so it's a definite no from me.
