I have cracks in the corners of my plaster wals, any tips on how to get in there to fix them?

An old pro painter of 40+ years experience that does a lot of historic homes here in NC, developed his own way to deal with that problem. He uses 6"-8" wide strips of black plastic screen "wire" mudded over the cracks, just as you would do sheetrock tape. It shrinks and swells along with the wood framing, that causes the cracks in the first place. Try his trick! It works. Good Luck!
