plastering over two parts of misaligned wall

Postby tomkoszel » Sun Jul 19, 2020 5:05 pm


i'm looking to plaster an internal wall using thistle drywall. i'm looking for a "rustic" finish so am comfortable that even with no plastering experience i can get the job finished to some level!

i'm looking to cover a wall shared by a ground and first floor rooms. on the wall where one floor "meets" the other the wall is misaligned leading to a 0 to 6cm "ledge" that i have inexpertly bridged with filler and scrim tape.

given that i'm ok with a bumpy finish could anyone say if the plaster will take and hold ok over this area? any advice would be very welcome! thank you!

hi tomkoszel
Probably worth treating the area with some adhesive agent like waterproof pva, there are specialist ones available which include grit.
