What type of wall compound to use?? Unusual circumstance
It's for a circa 1910 large ornamental foyer with a tile floor and marble steps, the walls have plaster coves and arches. The plaster is on wire mesh and the 20+ year old paint is peeling, in some places as alligatored chunks.
I haven't delved into it yet but it appears the top layer of plaster may be separating in places, or the peeling paint is really thick. It's an unheated area and subject to New England temperature extremes.
I am not sure that what I was contemplating, Durabond 90, is the right material to smooth the plaster defects with. Anything better to use considering considering the temperature variations of 0 to 90 degrees?
