    Get a bottle of magners in the morning, down it, then use the empty bottle to form it if you can't do it with a trowel

    They look proper s**t but the wooden handled Spanish plastic trowels are the tits for this.
    Look for Valles or sanz especially the one with the white plastic megaflex blade is like potters wand on anything coved curved bullnosed or rolled.

    Just man up and trowel it in step back look if it’s even trowel more in where needed then skim before the bonding goes off too far
