Afraid that you’ll make another big crack on the wall when you display a framed family photo? The trick to prevent the plaster from crumbling is to heat the nail first with a match or a lighter for 5 seconds before driving it into the wall. Once you start hammering, the preheated metal will make the plaster flexible, so the nail will go in smoothly – without cracks or chips.
