I got a box section to skim in a corner of a room which is glossed or silk painted. Read up on here about using eml. What is it??
Expanded metal lath, creates a mechanical key on the likes of metal plates or timber and can provide additional strength where you have had problems with movement and cracking. If you don't know what it is, will you know how to prepare it for skim?
I hope I am speaking to a fellow student btw?
