Not with the sound of music however, as much as random expletives. Some trying times today as I find out not all plaster cloth is created equal. The first lot I had purchased awhile back from somewhere in Queensland was a dream, quite a firm gauze and probably not as much plaster. This made it easy to handle, it kept its shape after wetting and allowed fairly simply placement. The second lot I purchased from Jacksons yesterday is a really weak gauze and what appears to be much more plaster. The result of which is something that turns to a wet mush when it is even in the same room as any source of moisture, making it very difficult to handle and place. The tradeoff being that if by some minor miracle you do manage to place it effectively, you get a much better coverage and very few evident holes in the gauze.

The first layer is now complete on the first baseboard, with a second layer over about a third.


A sense of scenery now starting to provide the possibilities. Can't wait to get this bit finished and add a bit of colour and texture. I like the way the plaster/wire hills are starting to turn out. I think some textured paint over the top will really add some life.
