How to Repair a Plaster Wall with a Swirl Sand Finish

To repair a wall with true plaster (as opposed to joint compound), just follow Leah’s step-by-step video instruction guide.  

Take your time, and you too can create and duplicate a wall with a sand finish. This is a great method to repair a plaster wall when you have repaired the hole in the wall with a piece of drywall.  You can match the texture of the existing wall, so that the repair will not be visible to the naked eye!

Note about Materials:  The plaster and plastering supplies shown in this video are available from building supply stores that specialize in masonry, concrete, plaster, and similar trades, and who sell their products to retail customers (as opposed to limiting their sales to wholesale customers).  You should be able to purchase your bonding agent, plasters, sand, and specialized plastering tools from such stores.

For example, here in the Pacific Northwest, we have such a store, called “Salmon Bay Sand and Gravel“. Do a little research, and if you live near a major metropolitan area, you should be able to find a store that sells everything you need to do your own plastering jobs and finish work.
