The last step in this process is to shape and finish the mud.
By using form boards the perimeter and plane of the mud
has already been created eliminating any need for additional
screeds. A metal or wood straight edge can be used to ride
the form boards while cutting the surface of the mud. With a
very light touch the float (resin/wood/mag) is used to smooth
out the final surface. Allow the mud to cure over night and
the boards are ready to be pulled off and the mud ready to tile!
