Making Positive Plaster Moulds

unikatissima Making Positive Plaster Moulds.jpg

I always wanted to make moulds from plaster but I never quite knew how to. At craftster I found now a tutorial on how to make positive plaster moulds.
I’d like to begin casting the stone, so that I eventually have something to wrap, paint or bead.
Or I try it first with half a cork, I think that could be a nice pendant.
Somewhen ;-)

Lightbulb Green House

I found this tutorial on how to make a mini greenhouse from lightbulbs via art for housewives.
Somehow I don’t know how to cram the big plant into the small light.
;-))
Perhaps I better stick to the lightbulb window vase ;-)

Rolling Pin Prints

I found a tutorial on how to print with a rolling pin.
The idea is really great.

I couldn’t try it yet, but when I will, I want to try it with those ready-bought fun foam shapes.

Flour Glue

I already presented the Rice Glue, here is an instruction for making flour glue.
It seems that it can be used very good for paper or cardboard and if you increase the amount of the ingredients (and add a little turpentine) it seems that you even get wallpaper glue.

What I really appreciate is, that those glues are non-toxic, that I don’t have to buy stuff to make them and that the making doesn’t seem to be too tedious.
