I have a **** house in Adelaide built in 1950.
I have bricked up a doorway and need to plaster over the bricks.
I have heard the right plaster for this job is put on smooth and doesn't require any sanding.
Is this true? If so what type of plaster is this and how do I go about doing the job?
My aim is to hide the fact that there was ever a doorway there.
The only patching I have ever done is with base coat and top coat which was hard to get level and needed a lot of sanding to get it smooth.

Sorry Chris, I can’t help you with this.
I thought you just painted over the render, I didn’t realise you had to plaster as well. Hopefully one of the guys will help you.
