I am a amateur at plastering but I decided the best way to learn was to get in there and start on the smallest bedroom in my house then progress to the bigger ones.

I have done a ceiling and my 4th wall yesterday, the issue I seem be coming up against is the plaster going off on some areas of the wall quicker than others, I can't understand why. Would it be just down to perhaps an inconsistent coat thickness? As it's the same PVA, the same coat of PVA (not more in one area than another) or is it just because some parts of the wall will draw quicker than others?

Air currents, wall temp, thickness will all have an effect. As long as it all drys out properly and doesnt crack I wouldn't worry too much.

Is about right. Normally you'll see it dry from the centre outwards to an extent.

Thanks fellas, should have said the issue being that by the time I have finished laying on the first coat I don't get chance to clean my gear before being able to trowel up certain areas. Perhaps I need to pick up the pace!!!
