09 Plaster Production Molds Nº 310
I apply parting agent because plaster sticks to plaster. The parting agent I use is a 50/50 solution of water and liquid soap. I apply it with an old paint brush. Click on any image to enlarge it.
I mixed one pound of water and one and one-half pounds of plaster. Always add plaster to water.
I poured the plaster into the mold with the mold table vibrator turned ON.
I washed out the mixing container, tools, and my hands in the 5-gallon bucket of water. Excess plaster is put into the lined trash bin. Never put plaster (dry, set, or wet) down the drain pipes. I always let a freshly poured mold setup at least one hour before messing with it.
