Matching plaster texture


I have a home built in 1950. I replaced a large fixed window (6'x8') with a smaller (4'x8') operable window. Under the new window is a new smooth GWB wall. Now I need to match the original swirling plaster pattern. It is a smooth finish with many coats of paint over it. There are places where they may have pressed a rag or cloth into it. Two photos are attached. Any suggestions on how to create this texture?

Matching plaster texture


you might want to try the drywall forum, or search for a plaster forum.

The bottom pic looks like it might be a variation of the old time coffee can method. They used to use the bottom of cans to get the circles. Usually on ceilings.

That looks like a can, some more manipulation and burnishing (sanding). But, I'm not a plaster man.

The top picture....I have no idea.
