[quote] what is the last plastering finish called; the smooth one that's kinda pinky. I have a problem wall which 2 plasterers have looked at and said they don't want to touch, therefore i thought i'd have a go myself!![/quote]
Its called finish and bought in bags at builders merchants or Diystores. For plastering over surfaces which are allready plastered or rendered use Multifinish, for plastering over plasterboard, use board finish. Multifinish can be sued on both if you have a mixture.
