Plaster of Paris Painting 

So this was an experiment. Basically we have loads of plaster of Paris so I’ve been searching for ideas of how we can use it. We tried pouring plaster of Paris into a balloon and squidge it to create a sculpture, this actually worked better as chalk than a piece of art! 

Then we tried to make some paint. Penguin mixed some food colouring with plaster of Paris a created a lovely thick paste. 

The colours love looked great, though Penguin had abit of a race against time as the plaster if Paris began to dry. 

I love the textures the plaster of Paris made on the canvas.

Initially the colours felt really vibrant although when the paint dried the colours became fainter. I still love the end result, it has a cool fresh feel and it looks great up on the wall. I think Penguin is proud.

Have you got any ideas what I can use the rest of my plaster of Paris for?

  2. Such a great idea, I love the effect! I’ll try to remember this for the future with H. It looks very artistic and calm like the beach and sea x #fabfridaypost

  3. Good idea to use it as paint – it gives a really nice effect! I haven’t used plaster of paris since I was a kid – I never did anything very imaginative with it, just poured it into moulds & painted it, so the usual! #fabfridaypost

  4. What a great idea to show the little ones their different texture to the normal paint. And for the leftovers – you could use it to make a volcano and to make solutions to go inside the volcano to make it look it it is erupting… ? 🙂 #FabFridayPost
