JAMES EPISCOPAL CHURCH 15TH ANNUAL PANCAKE SUPPER When: Feburary 27 (Shrove Tuesday) 5:00 pm until 7:00 pm Where: St. James Church 218 Church Street Lewisburg Cost: $2.50 Children $3.50 Adults By ANDREA GAINER WVU Extension Agent, Home Economics, Greenbrier County Tired of looking at those cracks in that plaster wall? Tired of seeing the crack repairs crack, also? You can repair large cracks in plaster walls permanently. Housing specialists at West Virginia Univer- sity Cooperative Extension Service recommend bridging cracks with a thin layer of fiberglass cloth. You attach the cloth to the wall with a special adhesive, which main- tains some elasticity when it dries. Both the fiberglass and adhesive are available in a special kit at paint and hardware stores. You can buy either a fast or slow setting adhesive. You might want the slow type for your first try. Follow package directions. To in- sure successful repair, remove dust, dirt, and grit by washing the wall. Apply a liberal coat of adhesive on each side of the crack,. Make the application area about five or six inches wider than the total width of the fiberglass cloth. Immediately press the fiberglass into the adhesive with the applicator enclosed in the kit. Press the cloth in tight so that the adhesive fills the holes in the glass cloth. To smooth Social Workers the surface, wipe out the wrinkles with the applicator. After the first coat dries, apply a thinner second coat. If the wall is textured, stipple and texture the sec- ond coat of adhesive with a short bristled brush. For a sand finish, add sand to the paint primer -- about three table spoons of sand to one- fourth cup of primer. In all cases prior to repainting, follow instructions on the adhesive container to select the proper primer. For smaller, hairline cracks fill with a plaster pencil. Again follow product directions about priming be- fore painting. If the pencil is not available, use spackling compound and a putty knife. We've often been told that when we have plaster, we're going to experience cracking -- but with modern methods of plas- ter repair -- we don't have to live with the cracks!
