my labourer is quite handy at plastering but his knowledge is slightly limited, so although i have learnt a lot from him i have a question about the types of plaster. we did a stud wall that ran onto blockwork, there was a slight kink in the line of it (existing studs) and the blockwork was a little bit rough (my work, ahem), he put on what he was used to using - PVA then 10mm bonding to bring it up to the same level as the adjacant plasterboard. we had to let it dry overnight as it was late in the day. then two coats of multi-finish over the whole thing. my question is - would we have been better off using browning without pva, and would it have dried quicker with the suction. or would it have cracked as too thick? i got him the bonding as he's never used browning before and wasn't sure about it. but now we're waiting to paint and i was just wondering if there was a quicker way next time.
