This is feeling like a slow process and I am now regretting adding the wires before covering the piece in plaster. The wires are making it difficult to cover the lath and rebar. I initially wound them up to get them out of the way. Today I unwound them to see if they are less of a nuisance straight, but they are still irritating me. I am trying to decide if I should cut them off or wrap them into the piece as texture now. This is a decision I will make tomorrow when I am fresher.
