Plaster of Paris Tips

Download Activity Guide
  • Step 1To mix the plaster, pour some water into a mixing container. The general ratio for Plaster of Paris is two parts plaster to one part water. This ratio can vary. You will know to stop adding the plaster when the water no longer absorbs the plaster as it is added.
  • Step 2Always add the plaster to the water (not the water to the plaster) and sprinkle in the plaster a bit at a time.
  • Step 3Gently mix the Plaster of Paris mixture from side to side until it reaches a uniform and smooth consistency. Tap the side of the container from time-to-time releasing any air bubbles.
  • Step 4To de-mould make sure the plaster is completely set before gently holding the mould with your thumbs on top and fingers on the bottom of the mould and flexing it out and up.
