Perimeter bulkheads tt bullnose, beams were framed with steel and finished with tt 90 bead. Fireplace built with steel and finished with both 3\4 tt bull and 90 bead.
I built three of these larger arch ways in this home. Room widths were all different, but the arches were the same. 3\4 step bull arch bead, mud on j bead, 90 bead. I cut 4" Canamold chair rail in half to crown up to j bead. I built a tool many yrs ago that I use to build the rings around the lights. I cut the profiles out of 3"x6" pieces of tin.
This ceiling was done in three stages, framed and finished upper inside, then built 2nd ceiling, 3/4 bull, 3/4 step bull. Then built out the valence to receive crown, led peel an stick brought this ceiling to life.
