:? Please could somebody advise me on the art of feathering in. I have skimmed a couple of ceilings and because of the size have had to do them in 2 halves.
The second half of the ceiling needs to be feathered in to the first half which I am struggling with. Do I pva the overlap and how big should the over lap be? Any advise would be grately appreciated.
You've probably completed the ceilings now but I'm interested in your results. I'm fairly new to plastering but have done some 13ft high walls recently and employed the technique you mention. I completed the top half entirely with two coats of multi finish but when I got to about 7ft off the ground I simply feathered the plaster off to nothing. Having done this I PVA'd the remainder of the wall including the join and the freshly finished surface and then completed the bottom part of the wall. I also ensured that I used plenty of water on the join. The result was fine the customer was very happy and I have since been back to carry out further work. How did your ceiling work out? Has anyone else got any tips on this?
