Recently finished an extensive plaster repair and repaint job on Central Park. Large areas were replaced by my friends at Gramse Plaster and stucco. I completed minor crack repairs using fiberglass mesh tape and joint compound. Wet-sanding smoothed the surface without creating clouds of dust. I also used USG Dust Control Joint Compound. Then the smooth areas needed to be textured to blend in with the 100 year old sand finish plaster. Priming and painting with Aura matte finish put the icing on the cake!
