Alright lads new on here. Need some advice on patching krend. Is it worth just skimming the wall again to stop light patches ?

Hi I have a wall made from limestone, it was really nice and white and I applied stabilising solution to it and it turned yellow. Can someone tell me if there is something that can get it back to it's original stone colour.

Don't touch stuff like that if u haven't done it before, go out with another squad that does it, to see how it's done. It's hard stuff to get right if u no experience in it, and very unforgiving stuff to work with. It can be coated over, with new beads, bit probably best to strip it. If it's all bumps and stuff, I'm assuming u don't have an ibar to scratch it, get one. Huge help, then just scrabble back what the ibar doesn't get and reveals etc

Cheers pal, I’ve done a lot of pillars easy with the ibar. Do I go go both up and down and across with bar? And can I just scratch them bumps out without redoing pal?

No don't scratch it back, it will Be hard as the road now, and if u are able scratch it back, will show up a lighter colour than rest of it. And yeah best do use ibar both directions to shape it.

Personally would take it off but u could rend aid it, or maybe another product available. How wet, different ppl do It diff mate, Ideally close to mortars thickness. K-rend sags though if it's too soft and ur coats anyways heavy. Best to do in two coats as one heavyish one.

Top man, two coats? Always do base and one top. If I did it in two do I wait till first coat drys or go straight over with second pal?

Usually go straight over it again, it only if beads are too heavy to bring out in one without if sliding use two smaller coats. If u can bring it out in one coat fine then no need. To coat twice.
