Hi girls and guys,

Quicky for you, got some k rend to do in a weeks time, never done it before, only small area so quite confident in doing it, I've got all the knowledge just putting it into action, would you guys get it on for dinner then scratch later that day/night or get it on early afternoon and scratch next day? Cheers.

Or even morning for next morning
I was going to get it all on for lunch, but seen a few people say you'd be there till 11 at night scraping it, as I've never done it before I don't know how well it hangs or how quick it goes off, wasn't too keen on using accelerators incase it caught me out.

Iv just done some on 10mm beads finished at 11 and I had to wait till after 11 the next day. 15mm you could leave it a day and a half unless it’s in the blazing sunshine

If the money allows then winter mono can be easy short days. With experience of thicknesses, background suction, heat loss, humidity you can have a relaxed start, home just after lunch and a lazy start the next day so long as the money is there.

Lime bloom can be a problem with humidity and with silicone you need the background dry and a dry 24 hours with an additive. But when you are a renderer only you have to take the rough with the smooth and exploit the better time of the year to the full to make up your losses in winter.

If I was into plastering though, I would bugger rendering off Dec-Feb and keep indoors.
