i mixed up a bag which was purchased today and it started to go off with in 15 minutes, I don’t follow there recommendation on water, I use about 14-15 litres per bag, the bag was in date, is there anything I’m doing wrong, all my buckets are all clean and used fresh water

There could be a couple of things

  1. How thick is your mix just stiff enough for your hawk
  2. Put water in first ....better to much water and adding plaster
  3. Over mixing .......this comes with experience
These are the main reasons

Sorry forgot the main one @BritishGypsum stuff is shite

What back ground you on
On an old painted wall, which has had 2 coats of pva, I just mixed another bag up which is fine, odd one for me, but you guys got more experience

Do you mean it sucked like fook on the wall or do you mean it went off in the bucket?
