Clay modelling services for decorative plasterwork

Part of the process of restoring damaged decorative plasterwork, or realising bespoke plaster mouldings, can be the creation of a clay model. Clay is easy to work with and provides a stable basis for shaping intricate details. It also holds its form when pouring on the rubber used to make a mould. Modelling for decorative plasterwork can also be executed in wood, plaster, plasticine and some other materials and is a highly skilled task.

Artisan Plastercraft has its own specialist clay modelers who create some amazing pieces, either to match existing enrichments as part of a restoration project, or from scratch using drawings and photographs provided by clients.

Below is a selection of images showing some of the recent clay modelling we have carried out, which then go on to be cast in plaster.
