Who wouldn't want a gang of elves like this? Cast plaster elves in a latex mould; the instructions are on the plaster package. Place the latex mould in a holder when you fill it, then let it stand until the plaster hardens. Paint with different shades of Hobbylack; use a wide, flat brush. We chose to paint each elf in just one colour, which is striking with so many elves. Easy, beautiful and something anyone can make.
