Can you fill holes in plaster hand and feet sculptures with plaster and smooth it off or could this chip off in later years?

If you mix a bit of epoxy with the plaster and work quickly you will have a greater chance of it lasting.

I wouldn't recommend using a nail gun on plaster, it may shatter around the area you would be nailing. I would predrill a whole and use screws into the studs. I recommend using a concrete drill bit. If you plan on covering the entire wall with wood or something then you could get away with using a nail gun, but if you ever take that wood down the plaster wall will be ruined. You could always fill in the pre-drilled holes and paint over it if you ever wanted the plaster look again if you went with screws.

The bodies were not stone, but they had been covered in ash which then hardened, creating hallows where the bodies were. The people who uncovered Pompeii poured plaster into the holes creating plaster casts.

repair any cracks or holes with plaster or filler and sand smooth. lightly sand the wall to increase adhesion of new paint. if covering a dark wall with a lighter colored paint, cover wall with primer before painting.
