REMOVING A WOODUBEND MOULDING

Once properly adhered the WoodUbend mouldings will stay in firmly in place for decades. We understand that accidents happen though, so we’ve made it easy for the wood mouldings to be removed and replaced:

– Heat the moulding with a heat gun , hair dryer or on a griddle.

– Slide something thin like a spatular or knife under the moulding

– Prise the now flexible wood moulding off of the surface. 

– Now the WoodUbend moulding is ready to be reapplied elsewhere.

You may pull some paint off of the surface so make sure you have some touch up paint handy!

USING WOODUBEND TRIMS

All WoodUbend trims are 2.1m long and can be used to uplift all of your creative projects. The flexible wood trims are equally effective when used in place as a dado rail or to embellish a crown moulding or coving. Some top tips to remember:

– Don’t unroll the trims before heating them first.

– Keep them coiled up & unroll only what you need.

– If you cut them short, don’t worry, they will stretch by up to 10%.

– You can cool them and reheat them as much as you like.

POPPING THE POSH CHALK PASTES

Posh Chalk Pastes are incredibly versatile, they can be mixed to create other colours, used to create texture or watered down into a wash. Once of the more innovative uses of these water-based pastes is popping them to create a raised eggshell like effect. Here’s how:

– Whilst the paste is still wet apply heat from a heat gun.
