How do you use Plaster of Paris for crafts?
Plaster of Paris is super easy to use. The instructions are available on the back of our packaging. But we have outlined the simple steps below for you to follow along:
1. Pour one cup of plaster into a mixing container or bowl
2. Measure out 2 3/4 cups of water in another mixing jug and slowly pour the water into the mixing container
3. Mix the plaster until it reaches the consistency of pancake batter
4. Sprinkle a small amount of plaster on top and if it doesn't sink, you know it's the right consistency
5. Pour the plaster in your chosen mould for your art project
6. We recommend pouring your plaster into moulds that are non-porous including foam, plastic wrap, or wax paper
7. The plaster will take approximately 20-30 minutes to set, we recommend letting it air dry
8. And voila you have created a masterpiece!
How do you use silicone mould putty?
Silicone mould putty is super easy to use! Simply shape the putty into your desired mould and leave it at room temperature to set. Silicone putty can be used for art models, character making, plaster, concrete, soaps, wax, baking, chocolate, ice cubes, air dry clay models and more!
