@bobby am going to try and spray sand and cement tomorrow. I think the sand i have might pump. What did you mix it at when u did it with the ritmo. My machine is just a pump like the eze machine.

There's a sand down here called kiln dried sand which is very fine.i will try to add some of this next time to bind it better.

All this sounds a right faff, what with different sands,lime plasticiser's and waterproofers can't you just use gypsum. Or like you say nicklearse you and a pleb on the hawk and trowel.
