Pva the area first then take your cement render and a small trowel and play trying to curve the render into the shape you want,take your time it comes with practice.
Use a mix of lime,cement and sand 4:1:1 the lime helps it grip better.
Once you have acheived what you want use a 2inch paintbrush dipped in water to wash of the excess.
