How to Apply Woodubend Moulds

Wood appliques that bend? Yep! You heard me right! Today I want to share with you how to apply these wood products to a curved surface. Thus the name… WoodUbend!

WoodUbend is a wood-based product that can be molded once it has been heated up. It has all the properties of wood and can be drilled, sanded, distressed, glued, painted, stained and varnished. A revolutionary and unique type of wood applique can be added to almost any surface.

Products Used:

How To:

Step 1. Heat the wood appliques with a heat gun or blow dryer first. Even if the surface you’re applying them to is flat you MUST heat them first.

This will cause the wood appliques to be reactivated so that it can be molded as well as allowing the glue to be absorbed into the wood. This will create a super-strong bond with the surface you’re applying it to.

Step 2. Apply a liberal amount of wood glue to the back of the wood applique. A bit of the glue will be absorbed into the wood while it is still warm and bendable.

Step 3. While the wood applique is still warm with the glue in place, apply it to the surface of your choice. If the WoodUbend cools off, it will become stiff once again and for this reason, you may need to reheat it even after applying the glue. Once it’s in place, once again add heat to help the glue and wood applique to bond to the surface.

Step 4.  Paint, stain or varnish your WoodUbend just like you would any other wood surface.

For this project, I chose to paintglazedark wax and add gilding wax to finish off this elegant look to add to the already embossed pattern. To read more about this painted piece, head to Do Dodson Designs here!

If your cabinets are laminate or a slippery surface use Slick Stick first! If you’re worried about bleed thru, use BOSS!
