What’s the best way to remove wallpaper from lath & plaster walls?
I have an old house with the wallpaper in a poor condition. What is the best way to remove the wallpaper without damaging the lath and plaster walls too much?
I heard using a steamer could damage them?
What’s up with all these plaster posts and comments lately?
In Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island" (written in 1881 and takes place in 1760 give or take) a cut is patched with "plaster". Wikipedia lists medical plaster as 20th century invention. What would the author mean by "plaster"? What would be used in that case in those circumstances?
Here's the exact quote:
>My own accidental cut across the knuckles was a flea-bite. Doctor Livesey patched it up with plaster and pulled my ears for me into the bargain.
Quoted from https://www.gutenberg.org/files/120/120-h/120-h.htm#link2H_4_0029 (chapter 22, "How My Sea Adventure Began")
Wikipedia article doesn't say much about the history of plaster but lists it in "20th-century inventions". Does it mean some specific design, like band-aids with antiseptic?

My Grandfather George Whitaker was a paleontologist. In 1947 he unearthed the largest mass grave of the coelophysis dinosaurs at Ghost Ranch NM. Today we enjoy a plaster mold of his discovery. They have since renamed the site at ghost ranch the Whitaker Dinosaur Quarry.
(Idea) Engineer's platforms should plaster lava fissures and other holes tightly, magma in the closest area should do no damage if few pixels are not covered
DE. This is the End Missions screen I want. Literally every single thing I care about in a single screen. I don't need half a screen taken up by a bunch of Warframes standing around like a plaster Jesus.
my cat was sitting on my lap, got fucking startled out of nothing and did this with her hindlegs. hurt like a bitch. i havent had any disinfectant at home at that time. luckily it healed without any infection. picture was taken a day later after taking off the plaster. that flappy piece of skin tho
Anything less than gammon coloured plasters is racism

I thought drywall mudding was difficult... Plaster is a whole new ballgame. [Rant/Vent]
So I'm now the 2nd person to modernize the overhead lighting in my 1900 house. Someone modernized it from natural gas to knob and tube wiring at some point probably in the 1920s.
A few cuts in the plaster later and I've got romex in service in every room and it's time to patch my butchery.
Next time i need to patch more than a small hole, I'm gonna hire it out. What a mess. So far I've got my brown coat down, getting ready for the skim coat and seriously reevaluating my choices.
But at least now, unlike the neighbor's house, my knob and tube wiring won't start a fire.
Noticed this pile of stuff on the top shelf of my closet. Nothing above it but a plaster ceiling. Nothing indicative of where it came from.
Is it safe to plaster over a coaxial tv socket?
There's an unsightly old coaxial tv socket in the middle of the wall in my living room which I want to cover over.
Would it be safe to just remove the plate from the front of the socket, cover over the bare end of wire with electrical tape and then plaster over it?
If this wouldn't be safe then I can just put a blank plate over it but I would ideally like to find a solution that is flush with the wall.
Will these work to mount a 55" TV on plaster?
I live in a prewar apartment and the walls are plaster. I've tried finding the studs but I can't find them. I've tried using a magnetic stud finder and a regular one but had no luck. Will these work for holding up my 55" TV on the wall? The anchors are about 3/8 by 2".
Thanks in advance.

Trying to find studs in lathe and plaster
This house was built in the 1920s with lathe and plaster construction. The electrical in the junction box on the wall appears to be knob and tube. I’m trying to find studs to secure a railing. Regular drywall studfinders seem to think studs are everywhere. Magnets do not seem to adhere in a pattern I would expect for studs. Any thoughts? Do you think the magnets might be tracing the wiring?

I relapsed on Friday for the first time in 5 years, my large plaster came off in BJJ class and fell out of my pants leg
As above, I was sparring in class tonight and I got a bit sweaty. The shitty plaster I put on my thigh peeled off and I didn't notice until it fell onto the mat and my coach saw it. The worst part is I wasn't sure if he knew I'd relapsed (I have scars on my arms so it's obvious what I used to do) or because of the size of the plaster and it being white it looked a bit like a period pad. Fml.
If it became a thing for women who receive unsolicited dick pics to just plaster them all over the sender's social media, maybe the creeps would actually think twice

Hanging pictures, mirrors etc on plaster and lathe walls
How can I find the studs easily in a home with plaster and lathe? I am not terribly handy; I can barely find studs behind drywall by tapping on the wall and listening. I want to avoid a bunch of 'test holes'.

Kitchen cabinets built out of the wall plaster: why is it so rare?
I'm househunting and I adore the look of kitchen cabinets seamlessly built out of the same plaster as the wall, sort of like this, though not necessarily recessed. When I look at websites for kitchen renovators, I never see this option. Reading blogs and books about kitchen renovations, I never see this mentioned. I find nothing about it on Google. Is it so incredibly difficult and expensive that no one is even considering it? Why can't I find this option mentioned anywhere?
I found a home for sale that has that beautiful seamless look, but the home isn't ideal for other reasons. I'm wondering if it would be prohibitively difficult and expensive to hire a contractor to create this kind of kitchen cabin

Why does he have a plaster on the back of his neck?!
The new Vue cinema ads are good until you get to the plaster on the back of the neck... Does anyone know why? Is there a back story to this? What the actual shit?! Am I the only one who noticed this???
My graphics teacher wanted the seniors in the class to plaster this wall with stickers so you know I had to represent the boys.
A day of 40% SA plaster and then soaked for 20 mins, removed what I could as looked like it was a bit black underneath in the middle. Now for overnight I’ve got some ACV soaked cotton again taped over it. I know that centre but is the wart, although still find it hard to know how much around is too.

Plaster quality - acceptable or not?
My first ever pool built and this is what I see when I turn on the light. To me, that kind of finish (with grooves and such) seems to be not right (and it looks ugly), but the pool company insists it is normal. Since I know nothing about these - wanted to check with you guys if this is something yall see in your pools or this is totally unacceptable? (I understand that plaster can't be really fully flat, so I would see some dips under light, but these grooves... it is almost like someone used their hand to smooth the plaster..)

Plaster of paris to stop bleeding?
So I'm sure many people here have used or at least heard of using cornstarch on a cut to make a temporary/artificial scab of sorts to stop the blood but has anyone tried plaster of paris? I know it is food safe, does harden very quickly when mixed with water, and is generally easy to remove from skin, but I am generally hesitant to apply any compound to an open wound. If no input I may ginnie pig this for y'all. Thanks.
Destroyed plaster when mounting TV
We thought we did a good job finding the studs, but when we screwed the lag bolts in a big chunk of the wall came out.
Do I need to fix this now? Will the hole grow or crack? It is hidden by the TV for the most part, so I don't need to fix it because anyone will see it, more worried about additional damage.
Any idea what could have caused this?
Has anyone else run into this? 2*4 wall, plaster and lath, wood paneling, and dry wall.

Plaster chipping on the bottom of the pool...is repairing immediately necessary?
Ethnically diverse plasters are unnecessary
I said it. I posted it on my IG and got told to check my privilege. What is the need for plasters in different skin tones really? They're not a fashion item. Different tones of tights, makeup, ballet shoes at a push but plasters?! Really? They are a functional item. They are there to protect a wound and hold it shut to prevent infection. Why do we need to make them diverse? If you're so concerned that a normal plaster doesn't match your skin tone, there are clear ones that will perfectly match you... I dont get it.

Trying to find studs in a plaster wall–magnet sticks practically anywhere on the wall
Hey so I've been struggling to find studs in my plaster wall. At first I tried the C. H. Hansen magnetic stud finder and could not get it to stick anywhere. I had another strong magnet sitting around and tied a string to it. When I run it along the plaster wall, it seems to stick practically everywhere. I'm very confused and don't know a whole lot about older construction techniques (or newer ones for that matter). The house was built in 1911. I have heard of using metal lath so perhaps that's what's going on?
Any ideas would be much appreciated. I have no idea how to find a stud (if it exists). Thanks!
Update: Well, as far as I can tell it's lath and plaster, wondering if there are just a lot of nails for the magnet to pick up? I tried using the floorboard nails as a guide which worked decently well. As u/ChipChester mentioned, the stud spacing was irregular near the closet. Unfortunately I was installing a curtain rod so it kind of had to be within a certain area. Ultimately the cu

Lumpy plaster and the state of my walls
We moved in to our new house a year ago and we’re slowly moving through it and making it nice. It’s a 1930s Semi in the UK.
Our lounge used to have a picture rail which some previous owners removed and have then lined over with lining paper. It’s fine during the day but in the evening when our lamps are on, you can see the lumpy repairs behind.
Additionally the lounge has an opening between reception rooms which looks like there’s been a bit of movement over the years. The plaster has blown and again, looks as if it’s been hidden behind the lining paper which looks awful in the evenings.
What’s the best way to approach either of these issues.
The lining paper job is awful all round anyway (wall junctions aren’t straight or 90degrees) so is the best bet to remove the lining paper and skim all walls?
What is lining paper for anyway (never understood it)?
I used flex paste to fill in the gaps and to bring the hill shape back after the plaster cloth covered it. Waiting for it to dry to see if I need another coat.
