Continuing on from previous experiments with plaster I expanded my approach by introducing colour. I purchased a pack of children’s tempera paint powders and mixed them with the plaster creating a marbled effect as well as natural white.
I added children’s tempera paint powder to the plaster to experiment with marbled colour. I found some dried leaves and dipped them into the plaster. Initially it took well but over time began to flake off. I added another colour to the remaining plaster and poured it into a bowl. Unfortunately I forgot to grease the bowl so the plaster will not release.
