An Historic Remodel of a 1930's hotel where my crew is working with some restored custom plaster.  To get the look back to what it used to be, we
add two different glazes and then finish up with a liquid gold leaf highlight to get the final look.


This is an historic remodel and the newly remodeled hotel will be opened in December of this year or January of 2013.  This group of photos is phase 1 of at least three phases. This is the ceiling and it is up about forty feet from the floor but really good scaffolding is set up.


This is the very first spot of the project for me and this is the sample that was approved to do the entire plaster look on all of the levels.

I like to be in a picture every now and then.  This is after both glazes are added and one of the bigger areas gets the gold leaf look.

The original ornamental metal with the "S" logo that is on the exterior of the Settles Hotel get's a new look. Painted black and then highlighting the "S" with our liquid gold leaf to complete

the new look for the 1930's hotel.

The lighting ceremony is on Dec. 28th and the New Years parties are booked solid already.

Me in front of a job well done.  The next step is the painters will come in and add the base coat for the walls and the ceilings to complete the new updated yet old look.
