Part of the reason we chose Tache (Tony) and his team was that he turned up promptly for the quotation at the time he said he would. This turned out to be the norm for them as they turned up early each day, worked hard and did full days to get the...

I had some deep, but small areas to fill in our walls after we had the electricians round and decided too much for filler so tried patching plaster for the first time. I borrowed an open bag from my Dad which he had open for a while, but was still powdery and had no sign of any lumps anywhere.
I mixed it to a paste that was firm, stuck to the walls and held its own weight. It has now been around 20 hours and most of the plaster is still like plasticine whereas I was expecting the surface to have hardened by now. Where there was very thin layers it seems to be slightly harder, but crumbly.
Could the plaster have gone off even though it looked okay? Could I have used too much/not enough plaster in my mix? Do I just need to let it dry more?
Any advice and best way to fix it greatly appreciated.
