Chandeliers

In making modifications to the elevator lobby at the Historic Federal Building I was called upon to float gypsum over the ridges of paint left around the florescent fixtures that were taken out, patch holes in plaster, and touch up paint. A large chandelier was hung in the center of the lobby, which after assessment of the owner for it's color was changed from antiqued bronze to a bright gold. This I painted by hand with a small brush and Modern Masters metallic paint.
