How to instructions

  • 1

    Clean two rounded plastic containers, such as empty yoghurt pots or tubs. One container should be slightly smaller than the other one. Use a piece of kitchen towel to rub cooking oil on the inside of the larger container and on the outside of the small one.

  • 2

    Wearing protective gloves and a protective dust mask, mix a small amount of stone plaster outdoors or in a well-ventilated room indoors. The stone plaster sets fast, so work efficiently, and mix small portions at a time.

  • 3

    Pour half of the mixed plaster into another container. Pour in a little dye pigment and stir to dissolve it in the plaster.

  • 4

    Pour the tinted plaster back into the untinted plaster and stir gently until you get a nice marbled effect.

  • 5

    Pour the marbled plaster into the largest oiled plastic container. Now place the smaller container in the middle and press it down slightly into the plaster. If needed, you can place a few stones in the smaller container to stop it rising up.

  • 6

    If you want more layers of colour, repeat the step with a different colour pigment, and fill the gap between the two containers as you go.

  • 7

    Cut away the plastic tubs once the stone plaster has set, and then paint your pot with Colour Fix.

Decorate your home with your very own DIY pots! If you use the heavy-duty stone plaster for casting, you can enjoy your pots both indoors and outdoors. Add pigment powder in different shades for a stunning marbled effect. Each pot will be one-of-a-kind and personal.
