Wooden Moulding and its production

Wood - is a tradional material to create wooden moulding. Even though, this material is more expensive than plastic and aluminum, moulding manufacturers can't substute and remove it from production. Most people believe, that a "true frame" has to be wooden.

Wooden moulding is produced from solid tree species cherry-tree, oak,walnut-tree, african aios, obeshe (african oak), ramin, red tree. In addition, moulding is created from softer wood species, such as pine-tree, fir-tree, linded-tree.

In order to create moulding, only the best wood is selected. Ideally, wood will not have any knots and dets. Before moulding was made, wood has to dry. Frames, which are made from non-dry wood will crack over time. Some moulding made from specific types of wood, need to receive additional treatment against bugs.

Furthermore, wooden timber of required sizes is created. On top of already cut profile moulding ornament is added on and additional material to create finish with different colours, patterns and other finish. For example, some moulding producers add multiple layers of pasta ( pasta composition is not shared, but it definetely contains (chalk, and mastic,casein glue, wood flour and additional pigments). After that, artificial dust,fretwork made of plaster and after it goes through priming process and receives gold and silver finish foil.
