    Default Cove on to wet plaster?

    Real-Debrid

    As the title says, is it possible (or stupidity) to cove a room where the plastered ceiling is still wet?
    My dad was meant to get his lounge ceiling plastered yesterday, and i was to cove it this evening. However , the plasterer didnt show and turned up today to do it.He tells my dad it would be fine to cove this evening. But I get there around half 5 and the plasterers arse is barely out the door = the ceiling is soaking wet!
    I refused to do it, and ended up falling out with my old man, cos I've came 20 miles down the road for a fcking coffee.
    If I'd done the coving, would it have fallen off in time? Or would it have been fine?
    cheers

    Just to be the devils advocet once the plaster has set then I dont see a problem I used to wet plaster when coving to stop it from sucking in.

    I asked a plasterer today and he told me if the plaster is wet, then the weight of the coving would just pull it off, so he wouldnt have coved it either.
    It was dry tonight so PVA'd it and coved it, job done.
