If you put pva in the mix before you roll it on there's no need to pva first...... also if you add paint to the pva/skim mix before you start rollering you can prime, skim and paint it all in one! My customers lose their s**t when I do this!

Funny you should say this rolla-skim are working on a product such as this. They hope to have SkimP on the market soon. They plan to have a version with pre added bonding agent called BND SkimP.

Can’t wait. All the painters can get right on with it, and we can all take early retirement.

This can be done mate, its a method the Koreans have mastered mix your plaster really thin so it's like paint and roll it on giving it 5 coats, hard trowel it the next day

Can you put skiming on with a roller
Have a go on a small ceiling.I used to put artex on years ago with a roller,the roller didnt turn as such,but was used to apply it and spread it out.Get a spat or speedskim straight on it.
