About this book


In The Skills of Plastering Mel Baker describes and illustrates the basic procedures for successful work in this key craft.

An easy-to-follow step-by-step approach with comprehensive illustration brings the whole technology of the craft alive for students and trainers, particularly those studying City and Guilds NVQ courses.
