Hi guys
got a dashing job yo do, the existing dashing is solid so we going to over dash it , would you apply a receiver coat directly over the dashing in two passes ( let the 1st one pull in a bit before the 2nd coat ) or would you let the 1st coat set and scratch it before you apply second coat next day

I'd be thinking.........why am I risking putting the weight of four coats of render/dash onto a wall.

The customer won't pay it have it knocked of , I could get away with one good coat but thought it might be better to give it a tight coat first , if I let it set and scratch it would there be suction for the second coat

I think K-rend do a light weight receiver for dry dash that is designed to go straight over old dash. If it's wet dash I would put the butter coat over the old dash and dash on the same day.

Wasn't going to use traditional sand and cement ,was thinking a pre bagged receiver
