kirk’s recommended tools, https://www.stuccoplastering.com/tools
Howdy, our faithful subscribers and fellow plasterers, on our Amazon site, I took the liberty of researching the tools we use to save you a bit of time and cash.
We don’t need the most expensive tools just the best built and proper trowels and tools at the absolute lowest price available.
Amazon easily provides this luxury.
If you find a better cost tell me I will change the Amazon link, as long as it’s equal or a superior product.
So, save the dough and DIY with the plastering tools we suggest direct from Amazon, usually free shipping, two day delivery with Prime right to your front door, make’s a person downright lazy, but happy.
Plus this helps support us a bit so we can keep making these teaching videos.
There are many ways to skin a cat just as there are many trowels to plaster a wall, the video below shows my plaster trowel of choice, accurately.

In this video, I’m mentioning Rib lath for the best metal mesh for any ceiling, plus a few tips on what cement plasters will work the easiest on a ceiling, where you have that drag called gravity trying to kick your arse you need to know what your doing to avoid looking like Linos from the Charly Brown.
FYI, how much sand for each coat of stucco?
Scratch coats are mixed at 1 part cement to 3 to 4 parts sand, brown coats are mixed at 1 part cement to 3 to 5 parts sand, finish coats are sold separately in pre-bagged you just add water.
In all our video’s I explain in simple layman’s terms the applications and reasons for our actions so that even my dear old grandma can understand.

FYI, vibrations can cause hairline cracks, this does not affect the integrity of the exterior cement plaster.
However, it’s normal for folk to panic as they have no clue why this happens its house movement, vibrations in stucco walls and or concrete are sort like Kryptonite to Superman, not good.
