    CC members will know why I am asking: ;)

    If a newly (properly) plastered wall is subjected to heat from a radiator before the plaster is fully dried, will the plaster be liable to blow and need hacking off and replaced?

    thanks

    It's always better for plaster, render, concrete etc to dry slowly and naturally. A fierce heat will definitely cause major problems, and should be avoided. A "gentle heat" from a radiator?? hmmm, you should be ok as long as it is "gentle".
