Instructions:

  1. Spread a layer of newspapers on the floor or ground for protection. Put on rubber gloves.
  2. Brush the bottom of the cake pan or mold lightly with vegetable oil.
  3. Pour dry plaster mix into the bucket (start with about 2 cups).
  4. Add the powdered paint to achieve the desired color. About 1/2 cup will create an intense color; use less for a lighter shade.
  5. Stir in water until the mixture is the consistency of thick pancake batter.
  6. Pour the plaster mixture into the cake pan or mold. Using a paint stirrer, spread the mixture until level. Lightly tap the pan to shake out air bubbles.
  7. Press shells, rocks, or other memorabilia you wish to save into the wet plaster.
  8. Allow to set at least 24 hours.
  9. Carefully turn the mold upside down and tap gently until the set plaster pops out.
  10. Decorate with acrylic paint if desired.
