I’m not sure about the plastic, if it gets scuffed you would get a line in the run. I suppose it could be ok for a cove or an s shape cornice, but if it was a Victorian straight run with a bit of detail say a drip member zinc or tin would be a lot better and you would get a better finish on the Cornice and keep the details sharp.

I bet they don't skip any molds they make.
I bet they do. We skip thrm all.

The cost of 250 is to run a reverse mould on the bench so it can then be cast from. The reverse mould is made of Plaster so no good once of the bench.

Running the cornice on the bench defeats the point of casting. So that's why a reverse mould is done so it can be cast.

But surely running down solid on the bench for a few metres is more cost effective. than running a reverse.

Hi, I'm looking for someone who can run about 3.8m of plaster cornice in-situ. This is to match the existing Victorian plain cornice.

Is this a dying art? I can't seem to find anyone in my vicinity who can do this ~ I'm in Melksham, Wiltshire, a few miles east of Bath.

If you can, or know someone who can, please let me know.

Many thanks.
