Faux Finishes & Restoration Techniques for Historic Homes

Inset Architectural Ornament and Appliques    

Appliques, raised blocks and plaster ornament can be set within your wall, with the finished appearance being much like a bas relief. Insets are an ideal way to complement your drywall, plaster, or faux plaster walls. Insets are made of fibrous plaster or inexpensive polystyrene, typically range from 3" to 15" in size, and are placed into a cutout in your wall's drywall. Insets are normally plastered in place. Most insets celebrate the human form, motifs such as sunbursts, or items from nature.
