Me and Jase swear by it. Goes on nice, covers beads well, dries fairly quickly and sands easily. It's not soft like that Sheetrock stuff. Aim to pay about 14 a tub plus vat. We don't use anything else.

cheers tony, been looking to try other finishing compound for a while now.
selco are selling it for 24.65 + vat per 20kg tub. which i thought was a bit strong.

do you run it through the boxes or apply by hand?

Any thinning down or whisking up needed or are you using it straight out the tub Tony?
