    What is the best way to "glue" small items of plasterwork to walls and ceilings? In Canada I used drywall taping compound, or all-purpose compound with a little PVA mixed in. This was on drywall, whereas in the UK it is more damp, and the walls are plaster. So I was wondering how it is done here. Plaster Room.jpg

    Potentially dri wall adhesive/bonding compound but not sure why you mean by “items of plasterwork”

    By "items of plasterwork" I mean the smaller pieces in the photo.

    In the photo all of the plaster decoration was cast in pieces in latex molds. The large cornice is held up with screws, but the smaller pieces are just stuck on with drywall taping compound. Underneath the walls and ceiling are drywall which has been skim coated with drywall compound and sanded.
