Casting hobby plaster is both entertaining and exciting. It's easy to get confused when browsing casting compounds – however, you need be aware of curing time, which is dependent upon which compound you choose to get creative with. In our range, you can find different plaster compounds, and select the hardness you want.

- The product must then be allowed to dry. Drying time may vary from product to product, but is approximately 30 minutes. The casting will be cured after about five to eight days. If you want a completely smooth result, you may want to sand the surface with fine sandpaper.

The perfect creative project together with others
Plaster casting is primarily a project aimed at adults and creative people, but children can of course always help to paint and decorate afterwards.
In towns and restaurants, more and more creative workshops are popping up, where you can book a table. These spaces allow you to get creative together with other people. Fortunately, you also have the opportunity to do this at home within your own four walls. Prepare a cosy evening for family, friends and colleagues, where you can cast plaster and decorate together using materials from our webshop.
You can let yourself be inspired by each other, and in this way also challenge one another. Typically, you will tend to choose the same colours and patterns over and over again. But perhaps you will be inspired by the others around the table and create something you had never imagined or dreamed of producing.
You will also soon find that some interesting conversations will be held during the process. You have completely different conversations when you sit down and immerse yourself in creative projects and hobby plaster. There will probably be fun, silly and deep conversations at the table.
