Applications

Precision plaster or hard plaster

Mixing recommendations:

2.5 parts of powder for 1 part of water.

Removal from mould: 30 minutes

Preparing the plaster:

Pour the water into a large container. Spread the plaster over the entire surface of the water. Without mixing it, allow the plaster to absorb the water for 1 to 2 minutes. Then, mix gently and let any air bubbles out. Never add water after mixing. Slowly pour the plaster along the edge of the mould. For complex forms, empty it and start again.

Pro tips:

  • Using cold water with plaster slows its setting time, while using hot water or beating it accelerates setting.
  • To speed up the drying process, place the object briefly in a microwave oven.
  • Mixing milk with water enables you to polish the object, giving it a marble effect.
  • Add acrylic paint to the water to colour the plaster in the mixture. Used extensively in preparation, it will give a marble effect.
