Good Morning.
I am plastering a wall of coarse plaster crushed with Knauf Readymas putty (putty for joints and finishes) and it looks good, but which one is easier to sand, plate putty or plastic coating?
Thank you very much for your answers.

Hi. The substantial difference is consistency. The putties are harder than the enduido but you can use it without problems. The enduid is more plastic and easy to place. You can use it without problems. What's more, when making Durlock we always use enduido, not its putty. What I do not advise you to use is putty powder to prepare with water. regards

    Thank you very much for the reply.
    Yes, I am using a ready-made putty, NOT powder.
    With the putty that was left over from the ceiling, I putty the walls of the room and sanded, but I intend to give it a second hand, I need to buy more material and I wanted to get the doubt of what is easier to sand.
    So, if I understood correctly, is the hardening easier to sand than plasterboard putty?

    So is. It is easier to sand the finish. It even comes in packages of various sizes so that you buy what is necessary unless it dries and is no longer useful.
