Step 2:


Separate the parts of the egg form. Place the top into the bottom section to hold it. Spray a thin coat of vegetable oil inside the top of the egg form.

Step 3:


Measure out an amount of plaster based on the size of your egg form. The ideal ratio for an ArtPlaster™-towater mixture: 2 parts dry ArtPlaster™ powder to 1 part water.

Step 4:


With a craft stick, mix ArtPlaster with water in the mixing container. Slowly stir the ArtPlaster mixture until it reaches a uniform and smooth consistency. Stir it gently to avoid creating air bubbles in the plaster.

Step 5:


Slowly pour the smooth ArtPlaster into the egg form mold.

NOTE: Do not throw any leftover mixture into the drain, it will clog the pipes. Instead, let the mixture harden in the mixing container, then throw it into a trash can.


Step 6:

Air Bubbles

Gently tap the sides of the mold to release any air bubbles from the ArtPlaster.

Step 7:


Allow the ArtPlaster to set up. It typically takes 20 to 30 minutes for ArtPlaster to set. Some heat is given off from the plaster while it sets up.

When the ArtPlaster is still moist, but not fully set up, insert a paper clip into the top of the form to act as a hook for hanging on a wall.

Step 8:


Remove from the egg mold. You'll know when the ArtPlaster has set when it's rock solid and cool to the touch. Carefully remove from the mold.
