Hello when I'm skimming I find when I am wet troweling I seem to be gathering quiet alot of fat on my trowel is this cos im using to much water? To much angle on my trowel? Sorry for this question that might be so silly to all the experienced plasterers but im an apprentice. Any help would be appreciated thank you

Possibly putting it on too heavy, lessen the amount on the first coat and second coat, let it pick up, trowel it flat as opposed to trowel it off

In those cases. Add bonding to the finish, let it pull in a bit,then second

im not having a go but i think you should learn the trade with a ss trowel before using a plazzi or any other gizmo before you become to dependent on them.
