I agree, Plaster Weld and rapid set cement For smaller lath & cement repairs. Screed it with a piece of trim if you don't have a Darby.

Very nice work Brightstar. I did a repair almost identical to that a couple years ago, that's tough work matching those plaster details, lots of durabond.

Re: repairing plaster wall


i have a place all brick wall, we framed out a lot, but still have 2 or 3 brick walls trying to scim out, some big chunks fell off, same idea though, durabond and glue?, or would I be better off doing it the plaster, and a basecoat, used it once before, didn't know you could smooth it with a sponge, so it was kinda a pain in the ass

Thorobond entirewall. Basecoat entire wall. Then finish. All plaster. Shouldnt have a problem. Knock off everything that is loose first.

But you can fill it in with durabond if it is a smaller spot. Just mix it up thick and add glue if you want.
Thats a good idea
