Our Dental Cornices are all hand made. Unlike the other patterned moldings, Dentil teeth do not lend themselves to being molded onto a base Cornice. The definition and sharpness of the tooth is lost in the process. After looking around for a solution we came to the conclusion that in order to produce the product, we would have to do it by hand.
We start with a simple plain cornice; in this case, the SM-7- ST, small teeth are cut and applied one by one to the plain molding. After drying, the molding is off to the paint booth where it receives its second coat of Primer. The extra labor makes it the most expensive molding we offer, however it is still a cheaper alternative to Plaster or other such products on a per foot price. You may have to wait a few extra days for your order to be processed if you order a large quantity.
The Dentil is a perfect molding for a Library, Study or even a kitchen. It is said to be a masculine molding, with its rigid lines and sharp points, it will make a bold statement in any room. The Dentil molding is available in 5", 7" or even a 9" profile. You have the option of ordering it with or without a Rope Pattern. We recommend that you calculate a generous amount for waste, in order to match the teeth on the corners; you will probably need 5% more that you would when installing other simpler moldings. For painting Dentil we recommend using a round brush (like an old shaving cream brush) to dab the paint on to the inner corners.
