It went preaty good John. I had a hard time forcing myself to use the trowel. I found it easier to use a wide knife to apply and smooth the plaster, but I know the trowel is the way pros do it so I kept trying and got some good results. The other problem I had was with blisters. I applied a base coat and a finish coat over old plaster that had a bonding agent applied. The blisters showed up as I was finishing the finish coat. In the areas where I was covering drywall, with a bonding agent applied, I only applied the finish coat of plaster and I had a lot less problems with the blisters. I plan on working with a local plasterer sometime this summer to learn first hand about what I was doing wrong.
