Ciao, creampuffs!


So last week I talked about plaster and using it with silicone molds.  I honestly couldn’t even have imagined it working as perfectly as it did!  I love how they turned out.

When I originally bought the plaster, it was to make texture on a flat surface.  I eventually want to do this with an entire room, but I really just wanted to make texture on wood.  Texture junky.  

Today, I did just that.  On a whim, I decided that I should try attaching one of the baby heads to the wood using plaster.  It stuck almost immediately.  Plaster likes plaster, apparently.

All I did was put down a glob and slap the baby head down on it.  Then built it up around it, messily.  I like messily.  Then I used a cheap plastic putty knife to cover the rest of the board with plaster – you do have to work fast!  I felt a little panicked, but it worked out fine.. Hahah

When it cured, I grabbed one of the frames I made last week, just to see.  Holy crap.  I love it so much.

I immediately texted The Manflesh and warned him that these could quite possibly show up on the walls of the room I’m planning on plastering.  Hey, they used to do this with cherubs, right?  I am just imagining a walls sporadically covered with framed creepy babies and squealing a little inside.

Next I want to try using the plaster on a form, but that will have to wait.  I have creepy baby heads to mount on every vertical surface.


I love giving stuff away, can you tell?!!

Comment below (the usual rules apply – if you share somewhere, comment again!) for a chance to win some *drumroll* plaster!  I’m not going to send you a 25-pound box.  Sorry.  I will, however, send you a 4-pound box and some creepy baby heads.  Lucky you!  I’ll pick a winner next Monday, September 5, 2016, using  SO go forth and comment!

WOOT see you next week!  I have no idea what I’m doing yet, which means I GET TO GO TO THE HARDWARE STORE!  YAY!

Now go make something!

Sarah wants to know how everything works. She also has a short attention span and is addicted to coffee. Those two things are probably not mutually exclusive.

Inspiring! Can you paint over the plaster? I'd love to do eyes that follow you around the room!

    Sarah Trumpp · August 31, 2016 at 9:50 am

    Oh yeah absolutely! It's meant for wall repairs and is supposed to resist paint absorption (plaster strips, for example, just suck the paint up like crazy)

Amber K · September 1, 2016 at 6:56 pm

That's a cool way to build up texture!

Uh I need creepy baby heads and plaster in my life.

This is freaking incredible, Sarah
