a bouquet of plaster

I purchased a small box of plaster last week and went to work dipping a sampling of bright fuax flowers. Mixing + dipping my varieties took about ten minutes and then I hung them upside down for a day to dry. The flowers have become the center of our Valentine’s Day decor. This pink, single stem came out as my favorite! What a perfectly fun (and unique) bouquet they would make wrapped in brown craft paper.

  10. This has the essence of modern art. You should post a step by step for the curious who want to experiment with this at home. I’m still trying to figure out if you added pink coloring to the plaster or if that’s the underlying color of the artificial flower? Either way, it’s very creative and they would make amazing gifts!
