As so many people asked how I spun the hawk in this video, the answer is below in the below video here's the answer to the old spinning Plaster hawk. For those with little to no patients, this so-called plastering secret is revealed at 4:33, so go to it and impress the hell out of all your plastering co-workers. -https://youtu.be/BP0wd8wcpck Funny, I received more comments on the hawk's spinning than how to apply a plaster veneer finish. LOL💃
FYI, folks, I’m plastering over sheetrock.
USG makes both Imperial and Diamond veneer base coat and finishes coat plasters.
Imperial is more durable, so it’s called out more often for schools and or hospitals. I prefer the diamond finish as this finish coat as it has more lime in it, thus giving me the ability to move the fat around easier.
I don’t know whether I’m using imperial or diamond as both spread the same for me to tell you the truth.
If I didn’t read the bags, I would have no clue as to which one I was spreading, but both are superior to gypsum products.
FYI the base-coats both have sand, which gives it strength.
The finish coats have silica sand, which is like 30/30 or talcum powder. That’s why it can be spread smoothly as glass.
No one can spread a material as smooth as glass if there is sand in it, as one can only spread sand so smoothly.
