I have a stable enough lath and plaster wall, which I would like to put a box framed picture on.
Usually with a box frame picture on to a plaster board or dry wall, or even a brick or stone wall, I'd drill two holes, put a baton in, and that would be the hanging point of the picture.
I have a proper (hasn't been touched in 100 years) lath and plaster wall. Thin wooden strips running horizontally, which then has plaster squished over it. If I put a wall anchor (such as this one) will this crack the plaster around the hole as it pushes the wings out?
I could find the vertical stud, but there will only be one (if that) in the middle of the short wall I've got, so will only give me one mounting point.
