Ornamental Paint and Plaster Restoration

Before & After ~ Ornamental paint and plaster restoration.

I’ve shared work done by my friend and colleague Tony Castro before, documenting several spectacular decorative paint restoration projects he and his team have done. Here is another great example from Tony showing what is possible.

The beautiful original work, which combined elaborate plasterwork with paint striping, stenciling, hand painting, and gold leaf gilding on the cornice and ceiling, had been partially painted over several times. Portions of the cast plaster were damaged or missing and the original areas of decorative painting were dirty and discolored.

Combining techniques for conservation and restoration, Tony was able to return this fabulous Victorian era decoration to its original appearance. Where unique features like this survive, it is always best to preserve them if at all possible. Tony’s website: https://www.tonycastrocompany.com/.
