# Skimming

Skimming is the technique of applying a thin layer of plaster or joint compound to a surface in order to create a smooth and even finish, typically before painting or wallpapering. It involves spreading a thin coat of plaster over the existing surface, filling in imperfections, cracks, or uneven areas to achieve a flawless result. Skimming is commonly performed in construction, renovation, or interior design projects to prepare walls or ceilings for final decorative treatment.

Example: The drywall contractor skillfully skimmed the entire room, meticulously smoothing out any imperfections and creating a perfect canvas for the paint.
