Dry-lining is a process in which plasterboard is attached to a wall that gives it a smooth finish to decorate upon with paint etc. It's much easier to drywall than to use wet plaster and better than re-plastering. Dry lining is normally carried out on walls and ceilings. The accessories that are normally required for the process include: Drywall adhesive, Plasterboard, Trowel, Utility knife, Plasterboard Joint Tape, etc.

Take clean water in a mixing vessel and gradually add this powder to with continuous stirring till it is smooth and creamy. Apply this to the joint to embed the tape and immediately overcoat to fully fill the tapered board edges and just feather out onto the board surface. Allow setting for 140 minutes. Apply the finishing coat, feathered out beyond the first. Apply Gyproc Drywall Primer to the whole surface to prepare the surface for painting, and then decorate.
