The spacing of pipes and electrical from wall board or plaster is intended to protect them from damage. Using this logic, you should always place the pipes and conductors deep enough into the wall and away from the outside of the wall to keep them from getting hit with the fasteners that you will be using to attach exterior and interior wall finishes. In the United States we use the International Codes more than any other. For homes we use the IRC (International Residential Code). I suggest that you contact you local building department there and ask them what the code requires in your area. Remember what you are trying to accomplish and that the code is just a minimum. If I know that I am using plastic pipe and 10P nails to add OSB and screws to attach drywall to a sheer wall, I would be careful to add nail plates to keep the pipes protected. If in the other hand I where using steel pipe and staples to attach paneling, I would have no problem with 1 inch or less of wood without nail plates as there is little to no chance of the staples penetrating the steel pipe. As always check the local building regulations and manufacturers instructions. Hope this helps! Maintain

Plaster itself is not poisonous. Some people are allergic to it but generally you will only have a reaction to it if you consume it. Plaster of Paris may cause breathing difficulties if inhaled.

Will plaster of Paris dissolve if used inside a home made snow globe?

Yes, so the plaster will need some type of water-proof coating. If you are carving something from a plaster block, moulding something out of plaster, or even using a pre-made plaster object, the only way it will not slowly dissolve in the water of the snow globe, is to make sure it is totally covered in some type of water-proof finish. I'd use a minimum of 2 coats to make sure. If there is even a small break in the finish for the distilled water to get under, your finish will begin to peel and the plaster will break down there.
