Plast'r Craft is plaster-impregnated gauze available in a variety of lengths and widths. Simply wet the strips, mold around a base shape, sand smooth and paint when dry. Non-toxic and suitable for all ages.??
To work with Plast'r Craft you need scissors and a container of water. (Cool water will slow the set time while warm water will accelerate it) Cut shapes to fit your project.
Wet each strip, one at a time, wringing out excess water for faster setting time.
Setting time is about 15 minutes. Air dry 24 hours. Less time is needed for smaller projects. Drying time can be accelerated in oven on foil at 200 degrees for 15 minutes or microwave on a paper plate on High 5-6 minutes turning every 2 minutes. Cool completely.??
When project is completely dry, you can paint with oils, enamels, acrylics or latex. If tempera or poster paints are used, add glue sizing and a shellac finish when dry.
*Please note: All plaster products generate heat during the set reaction, always wash hands or other skin thoroughly with soap and water after use.
