Plaster Posy

Plaster Posy Raw

Before falling asleep one evening, I was thinking about things to create with plaster and thought a flower would be fun. So the next morning, I grabbed some wire and started bending and twisting it into shape creating the base for a neat plaster posy. Once I had everything the way I liked it I applied plaster and got really messy. I love the rawness of plaster and find it so inspiring.

After the plaster was completely dry I used bees wax to seal images onto the posy. Then to accent the edges of each petal and the leaf I painted metallic gold paint all along the edges. I love how this little unassuming pop of gold looks. Painting the edges of any project really does help finish off your piece.

To complete the plaster posy I decided it needed a little sparkle so I applied Diamond Stickles and crystal rhinestones to the center of the posy. This really gave it that polished finish I wanted and it will soon be hanging in Terri’s apartment. When I shared a photo with her she claimed it instantly which made my heart happy.

Tip: I used Diamond Stickles as the adhesive for attaching each crystal rhinestone. I applied Diamond Stickles to the center of the posy, then while still wet, using tweezers I placed the rhinestones onto the center of the posy. Once dry each rhinestone was attached to the posy center beautifully.
