Does this plaster produce a "chalky", easily-scratchable surface if it cures too fast? I plastered an interior wall at 3/8" thickness, next day surface was chalky, I could scratch it with my finger nail. So I sprayed small section with water, next day that area was hard as a rock, color turned much darker than surrounding grey, and it was no longer chalky; what's the likely cause of this?
Asked by: Raffi
yes, but if used as a base coat you need to smooth it out with joint compound (reg. mud), sand, prime and paint no need to be hard as concrete and because of the chemical compound when you add water the following day turn harder just like Grout, or cement products

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Used in remodel of home with plaster walls. Durable and mixes well. Good working time but as with any plaster or mud project, it can get messy. Will need to use veneer plaster or skim coat for finished surface.
