Plaster Ceiling Restoration for Seven Grand Building

Plaster Ceiling Restoration for Seven Grand Building
Los Angeles, Los Angeles County,
California, USA

Previous removal of portions of a highly decorative gypsum and Portland cement plaster ceiling had been removed by previous tenants. The opening of a new restaurant in the space created the push to restore the decorative surfaces of this former cafeteria, using moldmaking and other restoration techniques. 

This decorative plaster ceiling restoration project involved reproducing gypsum plaster components and making silicone rubber molds out of adjacent matching sections of the undamaged ceiling. Multiple matching sections were then cast in sequence until enough material was availble to replace lost ceiling fabric, prior to painting.
