Christmas Craft - Plaster of Paris Snowmen

Silicone moulds are not only good for baking or creating candy, but are also practical to create plaster of Paris figures. For this project, a mould with snowmen was used. Once the snowmen are dried, it is a fun activitiy for all ages to paint them. Glitter was added for a little extra sparkle.

Time required: overnight due to drying time of the plaster of Paris

Difficulty Level: Easy

Material List:

- silicone mould for candy or soap with snowman shapes
- plaster of Paris powder
- mixing container for mixing plaster of Paris powder and water
- measuring cup for measuring powder and water
- kitchen knife for shaping castings while still drying
- drying rack or radiator
- acrylic paints in white, red, black and orange
- craft glue
- iridescent glitter to shake on the snowmen

Instructions:

Finished Snowmen
1. Follow this Plaster of Paris Tutorial on Craftideas.info to make the castings. Then paint the snowmen in colors you wish. Though the plaster of Paris dries white, it is recommended to also paint the snowmen with white acrylic paint to get a good saturated color.

Brush Glue on the Snowmen
2. Then brush on glue onto the front sides of the snowmen.

Shake Glitter on Wet Glue
3. While the glue is still wet, shake on the glitter and set aside to dry. Once dry, tap the snowman so that excess glitter falls off.
