At Fox Painting our team has a combined experience with plaster repair of over 30 years. This homeowner has damage that went down to what is called the lath boards. We were able to repair it and re-texture the area to match the surrounding plaster surface. We wrapped it up with a coat of oil based primer on the repaired areas followed by a fresh coat of paint in the matching color over the whole ceiling. The after picture was taken before the paint was dry and you can see the spots where the oil based primer under the paint is taking longer to dry then the un-repaired areas. Once the ceiling is completely dry the damaged area will be undetectable.
