Episode 4: Understanding Plaster Moulding Profiles versus Ornamental Plaster Mouldings

Benjamin Blythe, of ICAA member firm Hyde Park Mouldings, takes us “Behind the Scenes” to their plaster workshop in New York. We discover how plaster mouldings are created by using a shape or profile moulding and are also cast for more ornamental work found in nature and enriched with floral patterns using traditional and current methods.
