Miniature Seashells and Starfish Pictures

This project combines seashell and starfish plaster of Paris castings with canvas to create a set of small pictures to decorate any wall in your home. If you have collected seashells at the beach, you can of course use these instead.



Maritime Canvas Pictures

For this project you will need:

- 3 mounted 10x10 cm canvas boards
- plaster of Paris powder
- measuring cup and old spoon
- rubber mixing cup
- plaster of Paris moulds of seashells and starfish
- structure paste
- acrylic paint in beige and light blue
- hot glue gun


1. First of all, create your plaster of Paris castings according to manufacturers instructions and by following the instructions in the plaster of Paris tutorial.
2. When the castings are dry, hold each one over the canvas and dab structure paste to the area around the casting, without getting too close to the casting.
3. Let the structure paste dry.
4. Take first the beige paint and dry brush it over the casting and also over the structure paste of each canvas.
5. Now repeat step 4 but this time, use the light blue paint.
6. Adhere each casting to the appropriate canvas using hot glue.
