Make a Plaster Cast Sculpture

Make a squishy looking balloon sculpture, inspired by artist Maria Bartuszová!

You will need:

  • 2 cups plaster of Paris
  • 1 cup of cold water (maybe a splash extra if adding coloured paint)
  • A measuring cup or jug
  • A large Ziploc bag
  • A plastic bottle
  • Scissors
  • A balloon
  • Stopwatch / phone timer
  • Acrylic paint (optional)
  • A parent or caregiver to help you out

Just remember...

Plaster can be messy! Make sure you don't breathe in any of the dust, wear comfy clothes and have an adult to help you with any fiddly bits
