How to Make Plaster of Paris Flowers




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.
Next
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.

  3. Like Debbie I am pinning this idea. They look lovely on the cloche - love the cascade effect. Do you have to worry about chipping or breaking them?
