n (of Plaster) Appearance on the surface of the plaster of conical hollows (pops or blows). They are due to the presence of particles of reactive material which expand, after the plaster has set, with sufficient force to push out the plaster in front of the particles. They may occur in undercoats or finishing coats of plaster, or both.
