    As long as anyone that I know in the plastering trade can remember. The blemishes or hollow spots that show up on the surface while troweling are known as “cat faces”. Something to be avoided they are removed by repeated troweling with additonal plaster or more likely with the “fat” which is the plaster that builds up under your trowel while water troweling the “putty coat”.
