I've recently removed the lining paper in my living room due to damp patches forming caused by the adjacent building. I've sorted the source of the damp but I have found that there are some large areas of damaged plaster. The plaster is very old horse hair plaster and I intend to chip off the damaged plaster back to the lath and then re patch the damaged areas. My question is....what should I fill the damaged areas with? ShouldI I use a plaster repair formula e.g. Pollyfilla plaster repair or should I just go right in and should I use a multi finish plaster mix. I'm not overly confident with plaster so any advice would be more than welcome.
use carlite bonding, it will set in about 2 to 3 hours, once set you need to scrape it back 3mm from the finished surface to allow the finishing plaster, use thistle multi finish plaster for the final coat
