Cut around them very carfully and use the adhesive/filler to fill any innacuracies

Use our coving project for help, along with our project called Angles used in carpentry. The coving must be cut into short lengths to allow you to go round any circular perimeter. This applies to skirting also when the bend is too acute to bend the skirting.
