Re: Need Help with Fresco

I didn't use garden variety plaster, but when I did this I started with
bisque fired tiles with fairly deep scratches all over tham to give them
some tooth to hold the plaster. You could try this.

As an undergraduate, I tried to create a plaster relief sculpture on
plywood. My professor told me to use dry wall nails to hold the
plaster onto the plywood. Perhaps I didn't use enough drywall (had
every few inches) or too much plaster (a lot!), but my plaster popped
off, too. With more nails and less plaster, this might work.
