Few things are more stunning than intact, intricate ceilings in historic buildings.

    Or composition, perhaps? Long, thin moldings in plaster are difficult to execute, let alone apply, intact. And, I wonder what the original paint scheme would have been for the surface. Just imagine the stunning look of a polychrome paint scheme!

      Yes, I have. In fact I worked at Kenmore while at Mary Washington & I spent a fair amount of time cleaning the plaster ceilings with a toothbrush! I loved that place.

Have a thought to share?
