you will need to make this recipe:
Magazine cuttings or photographs
Make a collage portrait of your favourite Pop or TV star. But
this isnt a regular collage picture! This one uses sand
1. First put some sand into a plastic container and make
sure that it is smooth. Ice cream containers are perfect!
2. Place your pictures of your favourite Pop or TV stars
face down into the sand.
Next place any of the other items you want to put into the picture
in the sand (like a plastic flower or whatever you want!) Make
sure that they are securely placed onto the sand. Dont press
them down too hard, because you need the plaster to grab onto
them to make them stick! (handy tip: Glitter works great, make
make sure you use a lot so it doesnt all get lost
into the sand!)
4. When you are ready fill the container with plaster,
make sure that you gently dribble the plaster onto each of the
objects in your collage to make sure that they are all secure.
If you pour the plaster to start off all of your collage bits
will drown in the plaster! Once you have done this, then you can
pour in the rest of the plaster!
5. Dont forget to place a small piece of wire into the wet
plaster (at the top of the picture) so that you will be able to
hang your plaster picture up later!
6. When the plaster is set gently separate your picture
from the container. You may want to do this over a plastic bag,
as all of the extra sand will fall out! You may want to let your
picture dry out a little more and then using a dry stiff brush
gently brush away the extra sand on the surface of
