    Hey everyone,

    I just noticed a hairline crack in my plaster ceiling that has a swirl design. It is a relatively straight crack with a length of roughly 10 feet. I would like to keep the same design in the ceiling but need to fix the crack.

    Any solutions??

    Welcome.

    Is there a special pattern or distinctive finish style on the ceiling?

    If so, can you post a photo?

    It is a bit hard to see, very thin crack but long. I believe it is called a swirl design.

    Thank, you're right.
    Try it with the room lighting off, or during the day without the flash and hopefully the shadows will provide some definition.
