St. Paul Croatian Church, built in 1904, was cleaned and repainted while it remained open for services. Scaffolding was erected; repairs and painting were done in phases. “Old world” plaster techniques were used to repair cracks and water damaged sections of the Church. A simple paint color scheme was used on the walls. Gilding and glazing techniques were used to accent the ornate column capitals. Metallic gold “starbursts” were recreated using hand-made stencils. The existing painted murals, located in the vaulted ceiling, were cleaned, and damaged sections were repaired. All work was completed in less than two months.
