Repairing Horse Hair Plaster with Big Wallys Plaster Magic
Looking for opinions….
I have been repairing my horse hair plaster walls with Big Wallys. As part of the process, I gouge out the cracks a bit deeper and use paper tape to seal the crack, layering joint compound in the usual manner. I recently saw a video where the repair didn’t use any type of paper or mesh, but simply joint compounded over the crack and holes.
What do you think of NOT using tape?
I always thought the cracks would reappear at some point. Not using tape will be much faster. I am about to repair a bedroom with many creakscks so I want to do it right.
As always, thanks! Joe
