How to attach decors for fixtures?April 9, 2009
We want to put decorative sockets around the ceiling for lighting fixtures. It is better that they were plaster. Where do we get them and how to install them?
Plaster decorative elements offer several companies whose addresses can be found on the Internet or the phone book. On sale you can find various types and sizes of plaster ornaments that fit your apartment. Gypsum decorations are attached with a mixture of gypsum and glue, which dries in one to two hours. The element is fixed to the ceiling with three screws. Drill the holes for the screws so that you can hide the caps in the decorative element. When the decoration is fixed with glue and screws, put the heads of the screws with the same plaster that was used to make the adhesive mixture. After drying, the putty is easy to sand with fine sandpaper.
Plaster elements are more expensive than similar plastics. It is not easy to find a company selling real gypsum jewelry.More modern decorative elements made of plastic or frigolit are available.
See that your chosen decoration is not enough for your lamp. The element on the ceiling looks smaller than it actually is.
