Yes sometimes just the two. No speedskim, just put on and laid in neatly and two passes with an MT Permashape.
It gets exactly how many it needs to achieve the right finish, be that two, or four trowels. Four would be very rare indeed.
I have absolutely no interest in polishing/shining work up, it's not supposed to be.
100% agree I do the same there maybe times where it might need more than 2 trowels I dont need to flatten it as such as I lay it on nice and neat anyway scrape any s**t of the ceiling line and angles leave it to pick up abit trickle of water on the edges and angles then 1st trowel leave it to pick up abit more water on the edges and angles again 2nd trowel and it's done really polishing the wall is optional really some times I do sometimes I dont

If a customer mentioned shininess to me they'd get a full explanation if necessary, including being shown the relevant text from the NHBC, BS and BG.

Very surprised how good it looks once dry went over board today which I found a bit trickier but hopefully good when dry.
They do a board plaster as well,never seen it or heard anyone saying they have tried it.

I have tried the board finish but probs wouldn’t use it again now as there new multi onto board is faster. Iam plastering a church hall with the New MG as the Customer couldn’t get 30 bags of BG. I was A bit unsure at first about doing the big high walls with it but its looking nice I’ll upload some pics tomorrow. The white finish is

I tried it today only half a bag lol,it turns quicker basically I troweled up with sawn off speedskim st and when it was changing colour I used speedy again the s**t responded better to plastic in my opinion
