I need to replace my bathpanel and figured at the same time I'd plaster the area around the bathtub.

That's how it's been since we moved in last year. No idea why the previous owners chipped away at it (unless it was to fit the bathtub) and then didn't repair it.

I've never plastered before. I was planning to rub down some of the adjacent existing plaster, PVA the area, then replaster up to the edge of the skirting board before finally painting.

Is there anything I should do or look out for?
Any preferred type or brand of plaster or paint?

Dragging this up - I plastered it, looked great. Left it overnight and the next day it looked like crazy paving. It cracked and was easy to remove from the walls.

My mistakes were: using borrowed plaster that had been left opened for over six months; applying too thick a layer; not turning the radiator off (right next to plastered area).

I've decided to have another go. Plaster again (fresh) or use easifill?
