plastering around a door need urgent assistance

Postby plasterpaul » Wed Oct 17, 2007 3:04 pm

Just wondered what the best method would be to render and skim around a door. Its the front door and requirs the sides and top plastering around the door. There is already plaster on the walls up until the door. I was going to use tiny batons but also i cant fit my trowel into the gap between the door and the walls. Help please?!

You can buy margin trowels at B and q or ebay which are thin trowels for this type of problem.if you want a good finish angle bead the edge of the wall and skim both sides of angle bead,or just try to feather the multi finsh into the existing wall...
