Hi all.

Rewire completed just about and there's a couple of holes I'll need to fix as the plasterer didn't have the time and I didnt have the money to get the whole thing skimmed.

I believe the ceiling finish is called shell or fan. I wondered if someone could point me in the direction of the tool used to create such a patern?

I'd like to try and recreate the finish as good as I can.

For such a small area you could probably cut some stiff card to the 'almost' profile.

Rowland . . .

Just a small question, prior to carrying out the cosmetic surface repair with the makeshift or proper Comb; do you know how to repair the bigger hole in the plaster board?

Get the holes filled properly first and make sure it's below the surface of the texture. Let it dry throughly and then add filler to replicate the pattern. If you try to do both at the same time it will only cause trouble. THis way if you don't like the pattern you can wipe it all off and try again without worrying about the holes.

As other have said, cereal box card will do it fine, a plastic tub lid type plastic even better.
