Plaster at leisure
12. Plaster at leisure
You don’t have to do it all at once. You can spread it over days if you need to, but allow at least 24 hrs before continuing to allow the previous work to harden.
You can do as much or as little as you like each session.
Sometimes it might be necessary to put a timber prop on the inside against the wire netting to stop the wiring from sagging in too much under the weight of the plaster.
13. Clean around the sides
After each session, allow a couple of hours for the plaster to firm a bit (or even wait until early next morning), and then cut and remove excess plaster from around the bottom edge with a spade. This will be difficult to do if the plaster has been allowed to set too hard.
