Skimming slightly uneven plaster board

Hi Paul

Bought your DVD the other month and very impressed.

Just a quick question, I have to skim some plaster boards but they are slightly uneven from each other it seems they were slightly out when the adhesive set. What would the best way to go about skimming these as I'm not able to take them down and start from fresh?

Thanks in advance



Hi Dave, sorry for the delay. The best way to feather out the differences would be with bonding coat. Apply the boding coat to the uneven areas and rule flat with a straight edge. As it firms up lightly run your trowel over to flatten any ridges before it sets. Or if the unevenness is not too great - finish plaster will do the same thing.
