Even more plastering...(we've been doing it for quite a while now)
After I get it all on the wall and as smooth as I can, Melissa comes back and buffs it, first with a sponge, and then with a piece of plastic - cut from the top of a yogurt container. Here she is doing it as the sun goes down, so she needed the headlamp.
It has to be buffed before it gets too dry, so she can't wait until the next day.
Here's the window by the front door, with the plaster on it.
