What you do:

  1. Take out all the components from the Springtime Friends Mould and Paint Set and lay out on a table
  2. Place the mould trays (provided in the Set) on a level surface with the moulds facing upwards.
  3. Empty the bag of the plaster powder and slowly add in 50-70ml of water stirring gently.
  4. Carefully pour the plaster mixture into the moulds until they are filled to the top. Gently shake the mould trays to remove any air bubbles.
  5. For those moulds you wish to turn into badges, gently place the pins onto the plaster mixture.
  6. Leave the moulds to set for at least 30 mins at room temperature. Whilst waiting for the moulds to set, clean bowl, spoon and measuring jug in warm soapy water.
  7. Once the plaster has hardened, lay a cloth down on a table, turn over the moulds and with your fingers gently press the moulds out onto the cloth.
  8. Decorate the moulds using the paint and glitter provided
  9. For those moulds you wish to turn into fridge magnets, cut a piece of the magnetic strip (provided), peel off the backing strip and stick firmly to the back of the hardened plaster mould.
