Intro: Handle (hand) Jewelery Made of Gypsum (plaster)
A simple gift for a woman.
I did it in about 30 minutes (not including the time reguired for drying).
Step 1: Items
gypsum, clean water
spray paint on the structur of granite/marble (what you have or what you have to be)
cardboard circle (waste from adhesive tape) (pic.5)
Step 2: Mixing Gypsum and Mold Filling
First prepare mold- stick cardbord circel to glove - help fill the mold (pic. 1)
Mix gypsum: pour clean water (volume adjust to the amount of gypsum).
I use a drill with a mixer (pic. 2).
Mold fix (!fingers down!) and fill (pic. 3,4)
VERY IMPORTANT: DRY GYPSUM BY A MINIMUM 2 DAYS AT. 20 DEGREES CELSIUS (ABOUT 68 FAHRENHEIT)
Then using a knife, very carrefully,remove the glove (my mold).
Step 3: Painting and Finishing
Correct any inaccuracies.
Cover entire surface of teh primer.
After the primer has dried paint it.
I used spray paint - granit or marble structure for a super look.
Paint search in the web, in the shops hard to reach.
Step 4: The Last and Most Important Step
After complete drying ;)
Give it as a gift.
especially for a woman, she would khnow what to do (pic. 1)
