A: Medallions can be fastened using drywall screws into the ceiling joist or with toggle bolts. If properly fastened with four screws, you don't need adhesive. For concrete ceilings, use anchors along with construction adhesive. The best spot to drill on the medallions are those areas where the medallion has a spot thick enough for the screw heads, plus a place where the detail is easy to patch.
If your space is 140 square feet or less, the medallion is up to 20 inches in diameter; 140-210 square feet, 20 to 30 inches; 210- 280 square feet, 30-40 inches; More than 280 square feet, 40 inches or larger. As with any piece in the home, you want it to stand out without overwhelming the space.
A: Yes, you can paint almost any medallion. It's recommended that you don't paint the medallion while it's fixed to the ceiling. Remove the medallion and apply a light coat of flat spray paint. Keep the spray can at least a foot away and don't linger. Add a second coat after an hour. Once the spray paint dries, paint the features individually with a small brush. Wipe mistakes with water and a paper towel. When apply different colors, let one dry before applying the next so they don't mix on the surface. Highlight the borders, using a small brush because it's delicate.
