I am thinking of using wire lath as a base for a small ceiling. I've plastered before, but only over rocklath or blueboard. Questions:
- The framing is 2x4, mounted 'flat' (so, 3.5" on the ceiling side). Can I just nail the wire lath to that? It seems like it wouldn't key all that well there.
- Would it help (or be necessary) to add some kind of fiber to the scratch coat?
- I'd use Structolite for the scratch coat. Is OK?
