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.
