Tin Ceiling Layout planning
When using a hammered filler around the edges, it is very important to define the center of the design on your ceiling. This allows the tin panels to lie symmetrically across your ceiling, and is essential for making cutouts for recessed lighting.

Striking hammered fillers
The hammered filler acts much as a mat does for a framed photo. It really "sets off" the inner panels. These panels installed over drywall using a variant of drywall screws (with deeper-cutting treads). Cutouts were made for recessed lighting.
