The great advantage plaster has over many other decorative materials is the fact that it can be easily worked with any tool. Even sandpaper is enough to achieve the desired shape. At P & J Interiors, we use various metal tools to achieve the fine details that our mouldings are known for. It is also possible to create the decorations in advance and later attach them to the plaster with an adhesive. However, it is important to remember that while plaster is a versatile decorative material that can be moulded to fit any taste, it is not a strong material that can really only be reliably used fir finishing, rather than load bearing.
A building material used in architecture for centuries, plaster remains a popular material for interiors to this day. It can serve both a protective and decorative purpose, most often used for mouldings nowadays. Manufactured from dry powder and water, then applied to the desired surface, plaster is easy to apply and mould into any shape you may desire.
