    Improving Walls

    I have a chimney breast which needs re-plastering.
    The plasterer who was supposed to be doing it has not turned up.
    I may try to do it myself.
    In France they have a brilliant product called "Crepe" which is pure white and you put it on walls with a plasterers trowel.
    The reason its brilliant is that when it has set you can sand it smooth with an orbital sander and it leaves the wall perfectly smooth and being pure white the finish looks like the wall is whit marble and of course does not need painting. i.e once sanded the jobs finished.
    My question is, can you get something similar to "Crepe" in the UK and who makes or sells it, Please.

    There are a couple of U Tube vids of similar but it does not seem available in the UK.

    Sanding anything over a large area creates a lot of dust and mess - I'd go for the plasterer everytime.

      Could you board it out? I plastered a chimney breast - oh yes I did! - and it was a lot easier that I thought. I sanded it then wallpapered it and it's fab In another room I used that ready mixed stuff that you cover artex with and that worked well too.
