Skimming Over Tapered Boards and Joint Filler

Postby Pantalonas » Tue Jan 31, 2017 2:49 pm

Hi all,

I've had a go at using the American technique of tapered boards and joint filler, but I don't like the finish and want to plaster over it. The wall in question has two windows and the filler around the reveals just isn't giving a good enough finish.

Soooo my question is, how do I prep the board and joint filler for plastering? Watered down pva mix? A mist coat then pva? Or something else.

Your experience is greatly appreciated!
