Plaster of Paris Decorations for Easter

Instead of using craft molds intended for plaster of Paris, silicone baking molds from the kitchen were chosen to create these Easter figures. The advantage of using a silicone mold is that the castings can be so easily removed once the plaster hardens and they are easily washed for future use in the kitchen. You can paint the castings then anyway you like but for this project, brown paint was used to create chocolate looking figures.

5. Now you can dip a paint brush into a little bit of white paint. Stroke the brush onto a piece of paper towel to remove practically all the paint again so that the brush is practically dry. Then use the paint brush to catch the raised and lower details on the figure, to accent or highlight them. If using the figures as decorations you can stop here.

6. You can glue a wooden dowel to the backside of the figure and add a ribbon bow to create plant sticks.
