    you said you was a plumber in the previous rendering video, you got a good finish so dun’t get the knocking comments from the “pros”but if you want to take your rendering to the next stage and look a real pro take the render off the front of the hawk with the back of the trowel. Move the hawk up quickly and tilt back while running the back of the trowel over the render and picking up some of it from the front of the hawk. Regards
