I’ve had my eye on wall molding for a while, but I was never sure if I wanted to spend the time and money to build one.
So, I bought the Bullet molding kit from the Staples store.
The Bullet moldings are just as simple as the Wall Moldings.
They have a smooth finish and are very durable.
They’re not cheap, but they’re worth the investment to save time and get the best results possible.
I used the Bullet Molding Kit for a few weeks and have used it every week since.
I have been able to make 3 moldings in less than two hours and my moldings have kept their shape for weeks.
I like the convenience of the Bullet molds because I can open them in the morning, make my bed in the evening and still have a clean work surface for the next day.
If you don’t have the time to build your own, there are many other options to help you get the job done.
How to Make Wall Moulding in One Hour: The first step is to make a simple piece of foam.
The Bullet molders can be made of just about any foam, but the Bullet is the easiest to use.
Next, you’ll want to use a mortar and pestle to mix the moldings into a smooth and even mix.
Then, you will want to make the molding using a thin layer of wood glue.
You’ll want at least three layers of glue to get a good seal.
After all the glue is mixed and ready, you can take a few minutes to carefully peel the foam off the surface of the mold.
It’s a little tricky to remove the foam, so try not to use your fingers to scrape it off.
Once you peel off the foam from the surface, you need to make sure it doesn’t dry out.
If you do dry out the foam on the mold, it can crack, but it won’t be bad.
For a good finish, you want to add a layer of sandpaper to the mold and leave it on for about 20 minutes.
You want to leave the mold in a dry place, so don’t add too much pressure.
Finally, you just need to apply the mold with your finger to the wall.
When you’re done, just pull the mold back down and you’re good to go.
Molds are a very efficient way to get the finish on the wall you need, but not as efficient as a wall mender.
