Plastering by techniques

plastering is a set of skills learned and practiced over an apprenticeship of many years, there are some useful aspects of plastering that can be learned .A good quality finish is the result of managing the tools and materials in response to the changing conditions of the plaster that you are applying and as you can imagine, much of this is down to experience gained through working in this area for many years.

Plastering Techniques :

Plasterboard
Good material solid and stud to be prepared for skimming in fraction of the time and cost that it would take to float a wall using the traditional wet wall plastering methods
Plasterboard comes in a range of sizes and thicknesses to suit the scale of the task being tackled, Plasterboard comes with a range of characteristics that relate to the nature of the application.

Dry Lining
This is the process of applying plasterboard to a solid wall. Having cut your board to size, apply dots of plasterboard adhesive to the wall. Ensure that the edges of the board are well supported with adhesive especially where the skirting board will be fixed.
Use the same method to apply the subsequent pieces of board but run the straight edge across multiple boards to ensure that they are “true” and “plumb” in relationship to each other. Failing to do this will result in a wall that undulates along its length and has steps between each board resulting in a surface that is difficult to skim.

Skimming and Over Skimming
Dividing your wall or ceiling into three notional horizontal sections, start plastering at the top left of the top 1/3 of the wall moving across to the bottom right of the of the top 1/3 of the wall. Apply an even coat of plaster across the area of about 3mm in depth. Once you have covered this top 1/3 move down and repeat the process on the middle third. Once that is similarly covered repeat on the bottom 1/3. Now smooth this first coat so that edges and corners are “sharp” using the wet small brush or edge of the trowel. Also, now smooth the wall following the “pattern of three” to a relatively smooth finish. Basically you are removing raised aspects that are more than 2 mm high and filling any holes in. Typically you will do this by moving the plaster around that is on the wall.
Now make a second mix of Multi Finish and apply. This is the laying down coat. The first coat was called the roughing on coat. Follow the exact same “pattern of three” and this time aim for a smoother finish but without delaying the process of getting the entire wall plastered. Remember that plaster will only remain workable for between 10 and 20 minutes prior to putting it on the wall.

Once you have covered the wall you can now do a first trowel on the wall to get it smooth. Again follow the “pattern of three” and avoid concentrating on a single spot. Make sure holes are filled and lines flattened moving towards a finish similar to that which you want to finally achieve. This is really your last chance to get the smooth finish that you require removing large lines and holes!

You are now going to trowel the wall in three sets of three trowels. The first set of three trowels is when the wall is becoming firm and you should trowel the wall with single strokes of the trowel three times.

Up to 15 minutes later and using a moist 4” paint brush, brush the wall ahead of the trowel during the 2nd set of three trowels. This will help to lubricate the passage of the trowel over the drying plaster and prevent dragging.

Now up to 40 minutes later when the wall feels as hard as it does when set you can use the same technique as in the 2nd trowel above to give a final finish to the plaster.

This set of three trowels is done in the “pattern of three” and enables you to maintain a consistent finish across the wall, avoid concentrating on a single area to the determent of the rest of the wall and stops the wall becoming over troweled. The final finish should be dull in appearance yet smooth to the touch.
