Thanks for the info Brian. I learnt online at www.masteringplastering.com.

Bought myself a Marshalltown trowel last week ;-)

Might possibly look at bringing some Multifinish over, but if not, will give your recommendation a go. Roughly how quickly did it go off?

Getting Plastered

by davea • Mon 29 Sep 2008 13:55

Hello all,

I partitioned and boarded two new bedrooms and am nearly ready to plaster. I've recently learnt to plaster in the UK and have been using multi-finish. What is the equivalent in France, and is it readily available?

Taxe foncière and taxe d'habitation

Any ideas/help greatly appreciated

Thanks
Dave
