In this situation a recently added addition brought new drywall together with old plaster. Lakeshore was hired to create a small radius cove in a 90 degree drywall corner. Because the cove was small, using wire lathe was not necessary. Instead a plaster bonding agent was applied followed by a first coat of brown bag plaster, as the brown coat dries a foundation for the radius is formed using a stiff plaster trowel. Several coats of Plaster of Paris are then applied until a uniform radius is created. If done properly only a small amount of sanding is required to achieve a paint ready surface.
