Horse Hair Plaster Repair
These walls were in really rough shape. The home owner wanted the wallpaper removed and then painted. I suspected that the horse hair was in poor condition, and boy was I right. When touched the plaster would crumble, there were numerous cracks, and in many places the plaster had broken away from the lathing, which resulting in the wall moving when touched.
To stabilize the plaster I used Mad Dog Deck Fix, which was recommended by Mad Dog. Around twenty-five plaster buttons were used to secure the plaster to the lathers, and copious amounts of joint compound and a fair amount of joint compound tape was used to fix the cracks and smooth out the walls.
