Tips for Working with Hardwall Plaster
Before starting your Hardwall plastering project, make sure you have the right tools and materials for the job. Depending on your project, this can include:
· A good quality trowel (which you need to make sure is clean)
· A step ladder
· A wire bush
· A hawk
· A utility knife
· An electric drill with mixing paddle
· Thistle hardwall plaster
· Mixing buckets
Prior to applying any plaster, it’s important to ensure the wall is in good condition (i.e. no crumbling or loose brick) - a poor quality wall can cause the plaster to crack.
Using a wire brush, remove any dirt from the wall before you begin wetting it. Watch out for any nails as well.
Make sure your Thistle hardwall plaster is mixed well so that it’s both thick and coarse – this will ensure the two coats thoroughly cover the wall.
Your basecoat plaster should be around 1.5 – 2mm thick, while the finish coat should have a 2 – 3mm thickness.
