Consequently, how do you fill gaps in plaster walls?
Flatten with your trowel so that no plaster is proud of the scrim tape. 5 - 10mm gaps - apply scrim tape then mix up enough plaster just to fill gaps (Bonding Coat or finish plaster). Work the plaster really well into the gaps behind the scrim tape and then apply a second layer of tape.
