    I tried this project, but the plaster was too heavy for the flower, should the plaster be thinner?

    How much water do you use? Is it thinner than normal? What is consistency? Thinking a bit thinner to fill in between?

      It is a powder that is mixed with water to make a plaster that will harden when dry. You can get it at craft or hardware stores.
