Float and Set, is the method used for applying a background plaster onto bricks or stone.
Best way to apply backing plaster is to lath wall out vertically, in to equal areas then apply browning/bonding darby it level, leave to go off, then remove timbers and fill in the gaps.
if you can get away with just using lath in vertical the corners then i usually just use thin strips of 9mm plasterboard adhered to the wall with a continuous bead of bonding behind. easy to level and set plumb, easy to rule off and has the advantage that they do not need to be removed afterwards.
