PWF was recently asked to help with the recreation of several elements in the restoration of the Hotel Syracuse. A ceiling medallion was missing from a prior renovation and needed to be recreated.
Using a mixture of old school and new techniques we were able to faithfully recreate the medallion. We started by carving the design out of modelling clay. A rubber mold was then created from the clay. Using these rubber molds glass reinforced gypsum was used to create the final pieces.
