The following describes the creation of moulding form:
A metal sheet will be cut to create moulding.
Draw the profile of the desired mould on paper and tape the paper to the metal plate. In this case, the moulding is 60mm x 30mm, and modeled after the classical moulding Cyma Reversa.
Using a jigsaw, cut out the form of the moulding
Cut metal sheet
file the edges of the metal sheet to prevent injury and to eliminate any spurs that might streak the moulding.
Trace the moulding on a block of wood
Draw an additional line 5mm outside the line of the moulding design.
Cut out the moulding at an angle.
Sand the wood with sandpaper
Punch holes in the plate and attache with nails.
Attach the moulding form to an anchoring board.
Ensure the moulding form and anchoring board are perpendicular.
The next post describes the actual creation of a gypsum moulding using the above form.
