Gypsum Crown Molding

Is anyone still using the crown molding made from gypsum any more ? Use to use it years ago (5-6) haven't had to use it for some time now. Thank God !!! Just curious.

Have never tried it. Wondered about it. Must be a pain to use. Judging by your comment.

Re: Gypsum Crown Molding

we use it quite a bit on high end jobs in. all types of plaster moulding. carpenters and ornamental plasterers install and ornamental plasterers finish. it's a real pain in the but to finish especially with the highly ornamented stuff. it's a money maker when you can get it.
