I used acrylic caulking to make the moulds, this is an inexpensive way to get flexible moulding in no time. I went with the clear caulking but white would be just fine too as it will all be painted. I chose Iron Orchid Designs moulds to create my designs.
Adding Moulding Details to Home Decor
Here is a quick how to add detailing to your home decor with moulding and paint. Further details are at this blog link which also links to a bread box done in the same finish.
Once I had enough made it was time to apply them to the pieces , I chose a large wood candlestick and a round glass vase. The flexible caulking made setting in place super easy and if not right, easily removed and set in a new position. Once all was looking good I added glue and taped in place to dry.
Then is was time to add color, I painted everything in a dark grey from Fusion Mineral paint called ash mixed with their fresco texturing powder. This added more texture and dimension to the pieces. Once all was dry I added a top coat of Fusion paint in light grey called pebble and sanded back to reveal the dark grey in places.
This gave the pieces loads of dimension and texture and created an old world plaster look.
