Plaster of Paris

I love creating my own art.  I used Plaster of Paris for this project.
Plaster is a building material used for coating walls and ceilings. Plaster is manufactured as a dry powder and is mixed with water to form a paste when used. The reaction with water liberates heat through crystallization and the hydrated plaster then hardens. Plaster can be relatively easily worked with metal tools or even sandpaper. These characteristics make plaster suitable for a finishing, rather than a load-bearing material(!).
It is very easy to use.  The instructions are on the box.  I used a scraper and spread the mixture.  I left it to dry for about half a day before I spray painted with metallic colors.
Thank you for coming! Always great to have you on the site!
