– Apply the glue, press firmly and remove the excess glue.

– Double glue the polystyrene and the plaster.

– Mask the joints (if any) between the different elements with filler applied with a spatula or finger.

After drying, gently sand the joints with fine-grit sandpaper and dust off the moulding can then be painted with acrylic or vinyl paint.
