    Hi,

    Im about to plaster a bathroom ceiling but it has a slight curve on one side.

    Its similar to this but the curve joins the wall (if that makes sense)


    The ceiling has a old artex on it but no real high points...

    My 1st question is how do you stop the plaster when it gets to the end of the curve? would you use a stop bead or something?

    Also, should I bond the old artex and then skim, or just skim it?

    Thanks in advance

    Feather the ceiling into the wall.

    pva then a couple of coats of finish will normally do it.
    If it is heavy artex a tight coat of bonding helps.
