Hi, I won't go into too much detail but I'm boxing in on the right hand side of the beam (photo attached). I then plan to skim over the underside of the beam but not the wall on the left side of it. What's the best way to finish this, with a "thin coat stop bead"? This will leave a slight gap of around 1mm I presume between the metal bead and the existing plaster at the edge. Do I just fill this with filler and then decorate over the filler and bead?

Thanks

I must admit that I had to read your post a few times before I realised what you were asking!
Yes use a 'thin skim bead'.
Then as you said, use a fine surface filler between the beads finishing off with fine abrasive paper.

Thanks but you say between the "beads" but there would be only one bead. Are you sure you understood my riddle above? :)

I have read it again now, and yes you will be able to fill any gap between the new bead and the existing plaster.
Sorry if my reply confused it.

OK, I was sure I could fill the gap but what I was getting at really is to know if this is the accepted/correct way to do it when you're only plastering one face up to a corner edge.

There is nothing wrong in doing it the way you are proposing, if there was I would have told you.
The only other way would have been to fix an angle-bead to the corner, uni-bonded the plastered face and re-skimmed it. Then skimmed the other face when the 1st had gone off.
Choice is yours, but as I said nothing wrong with what you proposed.

OK, the other face is being left and I am just decorating it, so couldn't use an angle bead as it would be visible. The metal bead edge I presume will be fine with emulsion painted on to it, i.e. it will adhere?

To revisit your last statement "so couldn't use an angle bead as it would be visible".
No it would not be visible because you would be skimming both surfaces if you chose this solution so the angle bead would not be visible only the extreme corner of it which is normal.
Just wanted to clear up a point which seemed to be bothering you.

Mate I've said above, I'm not plastering the other face. I'm plastering the underside (horizontal) face ONLY, not the vertical face, which is why I've been asking about stop beads and filling the gap.
