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
Like previous posts have said u got fill out first or scratch first coat on
Sounds a right pain in the arse tbh

No, I put 1st coat on, then go back and flatten that, then If it’s on board I leave it 15 mins. 10 mins on a overskim. Then second coat
What kind of areas are you getting on in 1 set? Do you usually get more area on and under control with bg? What things would make mk better so there know for they 3rd batch?

Ye was only small ceiling wasn’t sure how the stuff would go straight onto the artex. Had only used it a couple of times by then

Iam Putting same amount on that I would with BG. I’d say do something with the formular make it creamier and it would be nicer to spread on other than that it’s ok.

I still have the october batch and it does this,dries solid with a sticky wet patch (ooh matron) so you're left with small areas to fill.that photo is on a sheet of flat board so no rhyme nor reason for it to do that.

Take the shite back to B&Q and either ask for a refund or exchange it for the newer batch. Don't just keep using the shite, it's clearly unfit for purpose.

Smells like polymers,,,, it dont accelerate its set if you add hydrated lime like bg bonding,that is 90 min set one,,,,,,,i also noticed they have matched bg price for bonding,,,,,it was meant to be a cheaper alternative and its unproven out here.
First time I used it, it seem to take ages to set, I added a few handfuls of cement the second time took an hour, I would only by there quick set bonding now
