We had some plaster of paris in our craft closet that had been in there for YEARS. So I thought we’d finally do something with it. I mixed it up and poured it into some small frying pans. I let it sit 5 minutes so that it could begin to set up. Then I sprayed the kid’s hands with non stick spray and dipped them into the plaster. I also added a hole with a straw so that we could hang them.
24 hours later they were ready to paint!
We used acrylic paint. The kids had fun customizing their plates.
Kaylee had a little help with the blue paint, but did the green accents all by herself 🙂 We let them dry, then I added a coat of mod podge on the front and the back to seal it and make it smooth.
Here they are! They’ve been done for 4 days and the kids keep asking when we are going to hang them up!
