This is a photos montage of the final rough plastering, skimming and finish plastering, and paining of a wall around a small window in our house.
Window framed with wood to get a square area around the window that is even with a new layer of wall plaster.
Roughing up the surface for new plaster around the window.
Applying new plaster.around the window.
Leveling the plaster around the window.
Plaster applied and leveled, but still wet.

A wood float is used first to further level and smooth the plaster.
A bit of Styrofoam was used to finish off the smoothing.
