About Plaster of Paris Moulds
Plaster of Paris is a versatile material that can be used to make a variety of creations. The substance is so easily manipulated that it can be poured into a mould of any shape or size to create artistic pieces, ornaments, and larger decorative items such as ceilings roses and coving.
Although taking on the challenge of producing larger items with plaster of Paris usually requires a high level of skill, plaster moulds make smaller challenges a fun hobby that is accessible to just about anybody.
Plaster of Paris moulds come in an almost limitless array of designs, enabling anyone and everyone to get creative and easily make items that can look professionally made and as impressive as something you could buy. You'll also get the pride that comes with ability to make something yourself from scratch and display it in your home, or even give as a gift.
Plaster of Paris moulds not only come in any shape and size, they also come in a variety of materials. Smaller pieces are often created using a plastic tray. The plaster mixture is simply poured over the tray, left to set and can then be easily popped out just like an ice cube from an ice cube tray.
Larger, more detailed pieces are usually formed using rubber moulds. Again these are simply filled with Plaster of Paris and left to solidify. The flexible nature of this type of mould means that you can bend it to remove your finished piece without the risk of breaking either the mould or your plaster.
