casting molds for restoration of detail molding
I have a lot of restoration work to be done on a 1860 something house that the owner wants to put back into original condition and needs details around doors and fireplaces replaced. I thought that I could make mine out of plaster. The original were made of wood and I fine it almost impossible to replace. If someone had an idea of the process to make my own molds it would be great.
here's a site that sells the silicone rubber mold/casting materials and more.............
Have you checked with an architectural woodwork shop to see if they can reproduce it? I recently restored a 168-year-old church and had some of the interior moldings reproduced at a local shop. If you have pictures and/or samples of the woodwork to be replaced and can‚Äôt find anyone local to do the work, contact me and I will give their name and address.
