Supplies2 Round Cardboard Containers with lids (Oatmeal, Stuffing, or Bread Crumb Containers Work Well)
Plaster of Paris
Disposable Mixing Bucket
InstructionsMake sure containers are clean. Mix a large batch of plaster of paris according to the directions on the package. Pour into both containers, filling about 3/4 of the way. Place lid securely in place and tape around edges. Lay both containers on their side in an out-of-the-way place where they won't be disturbed or roll around. Let dry overnight.
Peel cardboard from plaster. Smooth imperfections with a damp sponge. Let dry for at least a day before painting.
