Cream a tar tar

Can honestly say it really helped me and works, I'm assuming it's some kind of acid that counter balances/slows the alkaline solution? I was going to try the extratime or the other acid powder foodgrade stuff (can't remember what it's called)

Always thought it was a wind up

I like halftime, get about a 1.15 set on it. Also lovely for bonding, 2 sachets to a bag of bonding it's workable for about 15 minutes then flash sets and is ready to skim about 5 minutes later, just be quick though as when it goes it goes in about 20 seconds

I use it all the time on cornice work in workshop but only use it in casting plaster iwould put to a yellow bucket full of water the same as u would put salt on your dinner this gives about 20 minutes longer working life I have in past over dosed it and this is rely a very slow set but never known it affect the finish never tried tartar
