    I love the sound of this plaster project. If I was to do this with a class of 10 children how much plaster would I need for each block roughly. Would a 25 kg bag be enough?

    Thank you!

      Hello, that should be enough yes. If the children help mix plaster, do it in small groups and get them to wear masks (just for sake of inhaled dust and asthma etc). vaseline on hands or gloved, cam protect skin. Also don’t pour old poster down sink! Instead pour it into a bucket and let it set before knocking it out…

    Fantastic idea to use plaster as the surface to draw on and I love the individual work stations created from the curved card. It looks like a really industrious, absorbed workshop.

    What a lovely resource Paula. I’ve been creating plaster reliefs recently with young people but haven’t incorporated colour. Looking forward to experimenting with oil pastels and linseed oil.

      Hi Jo – we’d love to see some images if you get a moment!

      Here’s the test piece i did before the session… i must say i liked the graphite on the plaster (over oil)…

    Painting on plaster is very new to me. I loved this idea of painting. It sounds very creative.
