Had some electrical work done leaving holes in walls that need to be patched.
The plaster and wire mesh in my house (built in 1920) does not appear to be the typical chicken wire mesh that most search results yield. My wires appear to be about 2 inches or so apart in a grid like fashion and placed under that was some sort of black fabric. The combination of the large spaced wires and fabric are what looks like was used to originally hold the plaster.
My plan is to mix Green Top and Plaster so it is relatively stiff and just go right over everything. My concern is on the deep holes I will need something to catch and hold this mixture.
If had typical wire mesh or lath behind the plaster I wouldn't be posting this as there are plenty of tutorials here and elsewhere on how to patch in those instances.
Has anyone encountered this before and know the correct way to patch this?
