    hi all

    i recently boarded and skimmed a wall but im not happy with the results. Im planning on putting a thing coat over the top to tidy it up (in the daylight this time).

    What ratio of water to PVA should I used prior to skiming should I use?
    I was thing 1:3 but didnt know whether to use even more and go for a 1:2.

    Thanks in advance.

    Si

    1:3 fine, skim whne tacky.
    If PVA dries too quickly, let it then apply anopther coat
