Early ornamental plasterwork: Part 2
Article publication date: 1 April 1992
Discusses the techniques of repair and conservation of early lime‐based plasterwork. Considers the problems of cracks in plaster, detachment of plates of plaster, the breaking up of plaster, and the stages in the repair of wall panels and overmantles and the re‐hanging of ceilings. Concludes that since old plaster cannot be reproduced, careful consideration procedures are necessary, although complete plasterwork is best left alone.
