Plaster Of Paris Flowers
Create faux porcelain flowers with this easy technique using Dollar Store silk flowers.
Cut the stems of the flowers to about 2-3 inches long.
Mix the plaster of paris and dip the flower into the mixture. Dip a few of the leaves, too.
Let the excess plaster of paris drip off of the flower.
Lay the flowers on wax paper and allow to dry. Once dry, the flowers may be painted if you want them to be another color.
Cut the stem as close to the flower as possible.
Use E6000 to glue the flowers and leaves to any surface.
They're a beautiful touch added to simple canisters.
Make lots of flowers! You'll want to put them on everything!

Thanks for your beautiful porcelain flowers demonstration!
Can we use any plaster for these flowers? I live in Cyprus and can't find plaster of Paris!
What is the ratio for The Plaster and water?
do they break easily? and if so how do you prevent it
