art : plaster letter workshop

.
took a day away from work. typical we're (my co-worker's and i) sitting at a desk all day long doodling for hours on a computer. but today, well we enjoyed a day away. and outside for that matter! partook in a creative workshop with friends. made DIY plaster letters. each persons choose their own letter to their liking. created a template. formed the die. prepped the mix and poured away. it was a bunch of fun! there was good food and fresh warm weather which was just what i needed. it's back to the office today but this is something i would surely love to do again. my letter "B" was made for the mister. still have to wait a week for it all to set and then a bit of light sanding and it should be good as gold! we'll hope he loves it!

  2. i would surely love to do an online tutorial. after it's removed from the mold (about 5 days from pouring) it needs a bit of sanding and then it's pretty much done. a few people are planning on painting theirs but i really like the matte look so i may leave it white if not paint it flat black.
