... but that wasn't the question that was asked ...

I gave an alternative to the question of retarding yeso for plastering, sorry if that was the wrong reply.

The light blocks went up very quickly...well they had to!!
Fortunately I have some little rubber bowls which were perfect for the job. One little bowlful made up fresh for each block. Tried retarding with Amonia but it made very little, if any, difference and stunk to high heaven. Brilliant cleaner ammonia though! I remember that smell from bucketfuls of babies nappies in the back yard. I used to soak them for two days just in their own urine diluted with not too much water. Take the lid off and the ammonia smell really hit you!
Then I rinsed them thoroughly and washed them. Only the dirty ones went into nappy cleanse. My kids nappies were the whitest on the street! OOh I do sound old! Can't remember who taught me that trick.
There you are bil. When you've stopped weeing on the compost you can get the whites right!
If the light blocks you're talking about are the glass blocks, then you should have used " cola para bloques de vidrio" or even "cola para la colocación de gres" not yeso. These two products dont go hard quickly like yeso or escayola so you dont end up running about to get finished.

Already done.:-) And I like the result. So, yes, it was a bit of a rush but good experience with Yeso and I'll use it again.
