DIY Paintable Pottery Figurines
No need to go to a pottery painting shop! It's easy and quick to make up a few figurines at home. My kids just love painting these treasures.
How We Did It
We used lollipop molds for our figurines. (If you do this, you must close the lollipop stick space with a little playdough.)
I mixed up the plaster of paris and water. I usually do this step on my own since we are working with plaster.
I poured the mixture right into the candy molds and let it set for a few hours.
Once they hardened, I popped each one out and let them continue to sit overnight. (They could be painted at this point, but I decided to let them get a little stronger to stand up to my two-year-old.)
The next morning, the kids had fun painting each sea creature we made.
They gave these to some very special loved ones as gifts this past Mother's Day.
