09 Plaster Production Molds Nº 223
I weighed 5 pounds of water and 7.5 pounds of plaster, then added the plaster to the water and let it slack. I pushed the island of plaster under the water and squeezed out the lumps with my fingers. I mixed the plaster until it was smooth. When I could trace an S in the surface and it left a mark, the plaster mix was ready to pour. I turned on the mold table vibrator. I poured the plaster evenly into the coddles. I turned off the vibrator. Excess plaster was dumped in the trash bin. I cleaned my hands, tools, and mixing container in the bucket of water. Never put plaster (dry, wet, or set) down the drain pipes !!! I leave the mold completely alone for at least an hour for it to set up. This is just the first piece of this mold.
