It is important to mask off the ceiling area around the damaged patch. Make sure to cover all fixtures like lamps, ceiling fans, cameras, etc. properly. Cover the floor with plastic sheets and secure them with painters tape.

Don't forget to wear safety gear, like goggles, gloves, and a cap.
That trend in tin ceiling tiles topped out in the 1890s, after which much of that ornamentation was covered up with acoustic drop-ceiling tiles or drywall. It was much later when experts in restoration began returning homes to their previous grandeur that the preserved tin ceiling tiles were again uncovered.

Put screws on both sides of the visible cracks, leaving six inches of space between each screw. Take the drill, use the ⅛" masonry bit to insert some pilot holes. As a final touch up, use the joint compound to cover the entire area.
