    I did the plastering about 2 weeks ago but because it's cold there are still some dark patches in the corners. I put a heater in there yesterday for 20 mins then closed the door for the whole day and that seemed to work but the corners are still dark. Really desperate to move on as I have time off work so wanna get painting lol

    Cool, how long do you reckon it will be until I can paint it assuming I can keep it at room temp 20deg from here onward? Thanks.

    You can paint them as soon as the plaster has left if you want mouldy walls and ceilings like the new build I'm second fixing:rolleyes:

    I thought mist coat still allowed the plaster underneath to dry because of how watered down it is? It seems dry now apart from those dark corners... not sure why as if anything I applied less plaster to the corners since I was troweling it away from there :confused:
