Materials for Creating Gilded Plastered Flowers
1-Large flower (I purchased mine from Michael’s)
Tiered stand or plates
Plaster of Paris
Steps to Create Gilded Plastered Flowers
1. Make sure plates are cleaned of debris and grime
2. Take flower apart and separate them into 3 sections-be careful the leaves may rip easily. I have 2-3 sections of leaves for each flower I will create. Keep the stem in the middle of the large and medium size flower stacks. I kept the inner flower that creates the bud in tact.
3. In a bucket, follow mixing directions for plaster of paris. Once plaster and water are mixed properly, dip flowers in the mixture. Do this fast, the mixture dries quickly.
4. Using a cup or a bowl flipped upside down, have the plaster flowers rest on it upside down (see image above)
5. once the flowers are firm enough to sit on its own right side up, flip them over and let them cure for 24 hours.
6. Once dry, spray paint to your desired color and let dry.
7. Lastly, secure them to the plates using E6000.
