How to use a Plasterers Mixing Bucket
On The DIY School Plastering Course we use a range of flexible buckets for washing tools and making small mixes of plaster. They are strong enough, adaptable, easy to carry and easy to clean, especially if you leave them dirty over night by mistake. A quick kick will get set plaster out in the morning. While not being used for general plastering they can remain useful around many DIY and building projects. They can be bought from as little as £3 in DIY stores and Building merchants.
Buckets made specifically for plastering will have clear measurements for the ratio of water to plaster compound and will be tough enough to withstand the use of a mixer.
