would definately be worth propping up then removing any loose overflow on top as you will then get maximum support
i wonder if introducing fibre or even something like hessian or even old or cheap net curtains on top to replicate the "horse hair " reinforcement in the origional :dunno:

Definitely worth it , that's why I mentioned it in the process ,

Then hessian dippped in plaster of Paris was applied over the lot extending up the sides of the joists.


The hessian in palaster of Paris is really a hands on process as the plasterers soon found out that daubing it on with their hands was the best way of doing it. They could use a trowel to dollop some on the ceiling but then smoothing it and pushing into all the nooks and crannies was done with hands and fingers .
Just for a bit of fun information a lot of the "horsehair" was actually goat hair and evidently human hair isn't used partly because we cut it too often so it's too short to be of much use plus people slop an awful lot of dyes and goodness knows what else on their heads these days.

Do not use PVA. Read this thread toupret-tx110-is-rubbish-t96049.html BTW. Toupret I think makes Plaster of Paris
