I need some white finish plaster for the job in Berkswell. I think we need about 15 bags?

Knauf MP has been mentioned but I don't need a full pallet. So I need to find a local stockist, one that will deliver less than a pallet, someone to share a pallet with etc.

Alternatively, another finishing plaster to go onto board that's white.

Took 2 secs on Google to find it.

I can google any material obviously, but I need one which is available in the UK and that someone on here has used or can recommend if possible.

I don't want to get a load of gear delivered and dump it on @Nisus only for him to find it's a nightmare to use.
The stuff I put up is just like skim to use. But it can be sanded to. No problem to get it to u in the UK

That'll be the last resort if I can't get suitable finish plaster.

You can put DG27 grit on the boards then skim with the premixed white finish in a tub all from Mike wye.
All natural lime ideal for your job.

Can't spray it, well, you could but it certainly wouldn't be cheaper. It'd take a day or more to mask all the beams even if you could find something to stick to them without leaving marks/residue. Not to mention you'd need at least two types of paint.

Trust me, painting in there is an absolute last resort. If it wasn't we'd have done the lot in Gypsum and get a decorator in.

That's a onecoat plaster, similar to the stuff I'm using on the walls, no good on plasterboard it says, which is what we need it for (y)

@imago i'll Probably end up using the proofshield and trowel up instead of sponge lol :D didn't you say they do a finish coat?
Yeah, I can get some finish gear from proofshield and/or we can do a test board with the breathable stuff already on the other walls. Just wanted to see what else was available because the proofshield stuff will either hang for days or go off like a rocket on the board.

If the finish coats anything like that other stuff yeah it'll hang for ages, like 7hrs again at least :reloco::frenetico::muyenojado::cry::maraca:

We need to have a chat about the boarding and skimming, board lifter or another pair of hands/plasterer.

Airless spray plaster is white, can be applied and finished with a trowel so no sanding required 9-25quid per 25kg bag/tub
