I am skimming a small bedroom this weekend two walls need doing i sed this to a friend and thay have given me a two bags of plaster what was left over from the work thay had done last weekend. My question is this the plaster thay have given me is board finish i am not plaster boarding it it is going on to walls that have been plasterd at some piont in it's life would this be ok to use or would i still need to get multi-finish. P.S i am no professioal but i can do it.?
Thanxs for that welsh brickie. I have done my walls now the next thing is the ceiling as i have never skimmed a ceiling befor i am not sure if i am quick enough to do the ceiling in one go could i do it in two halfs? Also have you got some tips on skimmimg ceilings. And can i use multi-finish for that?
