pieceful Yep, Just, that's my concern too, but my fingers are crossed. Reinforcing wood frame now. Thanks for engaging

just I am not sure if it is strong enough to hold the weight. That's the only reason I can give.

pieceful Hahaha! Hi! Update, decided to skip the plaster strips, and apply thinset directly to existing canvas.

Can anyone supply me with reasons why this may not work, or suggestions for a different process?
I'm starting with an upholstered rocker. The seat will be replaced with wood and carved rigid foam, then thinset. For the back, I am looking to apply strips of plaster of paris, tacked to wood frame, directly on top of fabric. Then I will apply a few layers of thinset, followed by a mosaic application and grouted. Thoughts?
