Spat sponge or rabble
Can't really ever make my mind up
What do the thin coat specialist Think
In warmer weather It's not a problem as it goes fairly fast but in the shade this Time of year it hangs for to long to mess about with
I usually rule spat and sponge am I being G** and messing about to much

Would it help if you did a first coat the whole building then grind a second coat after I don’t know if you’re trying to finish it smooth the same day or

As long as it's flat it all looks the same no matter how you finish the base coat, so spat finish is a no-brainer, skip messing around with it more than what you need to,
Smaller awkward bits just base out to full depth spat mesh in and leave it

How long does this stuff need before it's rainproof in current temperatures?
24 hours prorend I finished that bit at 2pm yesterday and it started pissing it down at 3pm today I say 12 hours it's fine never read the technical bullshit I do it smoother way! :ROFLMAO:

Spat finish= spatula, as in just flatten with the big refina or speedskim? I did first pass of about 4 mm then mesh then skimmed mesh in with 2mm then went over all with 3mm then refina spatula to flatten all pretty good then sponged any lines, came iut good

Thinking I should do in 2 passes, was first attempt though
