How to make this ceiling rose
Using a gloved hand , the casting plaster is mixed in a bowl of clean cold water
Once mixed to a creamy consistency the plaster is poured into the centre of a clean flood mould , making sure that all the mould is covered. This is called the firstings.
The flood mould is carefully vibrated to remove any air pockets and to make sure that all the enrichments are fully covered
Canvas Hessian is now laid onto the cast; this will provide reinforcement and give the plaster cast strength
Once it is poured, it can be ruled off to produce a flat and true surface that can be fixed to a ceiling once set and dried
When the plaster cast is finished it is then left until it has set and all the heat given off has died away.
The flood mould is now turned over and removed from the plaster cast
Clean the flood mould ready for making another cast
