I’ve been reading Matt’s book “Moldings in Practice” and I’ve gone through some lessons in the book. They are easy to follow and understand, then again what’s they’re to understand, it’s all pretty basic stuff. Nonetheless it’s worth the read and to complete the exercises.
I did all these mouldings with just a pair of 6’s.

I was thinking about making some dedicated moulding planes but changed my mind for good reason. While they may give you a consistent profile and produce a faster cut, they would be too difficult to sharpen without ruining the profile. I’m already having a hard time sharpening these H&R’s let alone some complicated profile.
