Yup... 5-1 4 -1 ..lol piss it in till I am happy
plastering is not always an exact science... you will know over time whats right.
WBA is good but if its below 5 it wont set... especially on LS background.
I still prefer to skim on dry PVA but I not starting that can of worms
i never understand why people give a surface lots of coats of weak pva, why not give it 1 coat of a stronger mix and be done with it. then second coat when youre ready to skim
It used to be dark side plastering light side decoration,but because the paper on the plasterboard where it folds over has known to fail it is now light side for both,and in case you are a bit thick it now tells you.
