I normally put some sand in the paint - so when it covers everywhere,it rubs itself down as well  Wink

You should have said to cover the sparkies lamp with wildebeast fat so the paint didnt stick to it.

Apply a spot of dabbing before applying plaster. Bored?

There is no quick fix solution to a good finish.

Do you need to plaster the walls even if there are no cuts or cracks? Would you use a water proof Band Aid plaster or is there a special type of plaster for each type of paint?
