09 Plaster Production Molds Nº 82
I finally found the largest mixing bowl in my plastic mixing bowl set, but alas, it is also too small. Click on the image to enlarge it.
I had to go outside and get a pail from the garden and clean it up. I tared the empty bucket, then put 4 pounds and 14 ounces of clean cool tap water in it. Cool water will help retard the setup time of plaster. Warm water will cause it to set up faster.
I also weighed out 7 pounds 4 ounces of plaster of Paris.
I followed my usual method of slacking, mixing, and pouring the plaster, using the mold table vibrator.
I poured the excess plaster in the lined trash can. I washed off my hands and the mixing bucket in the bucket of water. Never put plaster (dry, set, or wet) down the drain !!!.
