We've just stripped one of our rooms right back to the old plaster (walls are plaster on brick) and plan to skim over the top. I have 2 questions:
- We've knocked out a small patch of lose plaster right back to the brick. Can we patch this with some plasterboard and fill before the skim coat? Or is patching with plaster alone best?
- The corner beads are the wooden ones, we'd like sharp corners for the room. Can a skim bead be installed over the top? Or do we need to remove the wooden beads and risk damaging surrounding plaster?
