Depends on the tension on the bar on your tyrolean gun, have a play about on the back of a spot board - or even the front if you like - you will find the right combination of bar tension + thickness of mixture :RpS_thumbup:

And mask up first :RpS_thumbsup:

yes what you need is my one day corse on slop dashing it is intensive. it is very reasonable priced at £350 that includes a starter pack of 3 bags of sand 1 bag of op cement a packet of feb and 2 stop beads. so as you can do a feature panel on the front of your home when you have got the knac.
i am based in suffolk so you can take in some of the breath taking views here . or as the locals say if you have seen a ploughed field you have seen suffolk.
my studio aka as my garage is close to the main line station so i can soon pop down and pick you up in the old bird puller.
rember cash is king.
