How to make Plaster of Paris Flowers using Silks

I had some silk flowers left over from the Hurricane Daisy Vases I made Here
and not wanting to waste them or store them in the craft room,  I decided to make some Plaster of Paris flowers with them.

Plaster of Paris Recipe

2 cups Plaster of Paris (or two parts)
1 cup water (or 1 part)
Mix your plaster mix well until it looks like pancake batter.
Dip your silks into the mixture
and place on parchment paper to dry.
I let mine dry over night.

Once they are dry, chip off the excess Plaster of Paris.
Since I am still adding color to the family room I used the colors I have been using on some other projects I have done

I added the first color let it dry and then the second color.  Not actually painting, but dry brushing letting it just hit the high points of the flowers and leaves

I chalk painted this plate a while back and decided to embellish it with the plaster flowers.
  I  attached the leaves and flowers with the E6000 and then sprayed it with clear spray paint.

The next project I added the remainder of the plaster flowers to a Bird Cloche I purchased awhile back.
 I attached them in a cascaded fashion to this bird Cloche using the E6000 glue.

  1. Hi Tammy! These are so pretty! I like the plate but love the ones cascading down the cloche. Thanks so much for sharing with Transformed Tuesday.<br /><br />Hugs,<br />Peggy~PJH Designs

  2. Like Diane, who posted a comment before me, I have bookmarked this, also! Always wanted to try this but never did. I seem to be a person who likes being taught… takes the scariness out of something new! I know… silly me! LOL

  3. So glad you posted about this today! I&#39;ve been thinking of trying this method to cover up some &quot;broken&quot; pieces! I&#39;ll definitely try this!! Thanks!!~~Angela

  4. What a unique idea for using up those old flowers left over! I love how they turned out and can think of lots of ways to use them. Thanks for the inspiration, I&#39;ve pinned. <br />Debbie :)
