Dry wall sucks.
The US way of doing it does lol!
Just taping and plastering the joints where the plaster/gypsum boards meet...lame.
My favourite tools are my trowels, they make me the most money.
I plaster walls and ceilings, always two coats, covering the whole surface, not just the joints in the wall boards.
Name your mix, gypsum, sand cement, lime, if it needs a trowel to apply then it is my favourite work, especially if I'm joining two uneven surfaces
together without any edge beading.
External rendering and sexy rustic curves is my passion.
I also do block/brick/timber/general construction, from concreting to roofing, but plastering and rendering are the true skill. It is dependant on the
skills of a sculptor or an artist.
Anyone can cut a piece of 4" by 2" on a chop saw....but making something beautiful with your hand/wrist as the tool...nope, that is different.
