Proper Use of a Hawk and Trowel
Mastering the hawk and trowel will enable you to plaster a wall faster and more efficiently. It's basically a four-part technique.
- Scoop a generous amount of plaster to the hawk. Make sure the plaster is balanced on the center of the hawk. This will help lessen fatigue to your wrist as you work. Turning the hawk occasionally as you work will also help reduce fatigue over time.
