This swirled, textured ceiling in a New York City Lobby was designed by the head of EverGreene’s decorative finishes department, Robin Roi.

To create this warm, dynamic combination of color and texture, EverGreene artists primed the surface of the ceiling to create a textured pattern in a dark green color, which the client specified they would like to  ghost through after the surface was gilded.

EverGreene artists then created a textured finish with heavy acrylic paint, using massive brushes in a swirled pattern. The pattern was then gilded with aluminum leaf.  The gilding was then sanded/ abraded lightly to reveal the texture and color, and finally, the surface was glazed to match the color of the rest of the lobby.
