Reprint. Originally published: 1996.

Few craft materials are cheaper to buy or easier to work with than plaster, and by mastering and using a few simple techniques you can turn this humble material into gloriously inspiring objects and artefacts.

No expensive equipment is required - plaster dries naturally and does not need kiln-firing - so all you need to get started is a bag of plaster, a few simple materials and some basic shaping tools.

The book shows how to make articles such as shells, fruit, animals, masks, wall plaques and bows; practical objects such as containers, candleholders, frames and bookends; and how to restore damaged frames.

There is also advice on finishing techniques - from painting and gilding to weathering, distressing and varnishing.

The book presents the craft of plastering in a beautifully inspirational form.
