Ornamental Plaster ceiling needs repair


This ceiling is a 60 year old ornamental plaster ceiling. The ceiling is cracking and is separating from the base. The edges of the cracks have become brittle. I have tried wellbond which did not work. Any suggestions?

Got some pictures?
If the keys are broken off then your going to need plaster washers to pull it back in place.
This is not an easy job for even the pro's. May want to concider hiring one.

Attached is a photo. I don't think the washer idea will work with this particular ceiling.
