Materials

Faster Plaster
Measuring cup
Water
Plastic container with lid
Bite-size Brownie Squares Silicone Baking Mold by Wilton
Pre-cut adhesive backed craft foam shapes
Adirondack Alcohol Ink by Ranger
Aleene’s® Liquid Fusion Clear Urethane Glue

Instructions
Remove paper backing from foam shape and press into bottom of mold. Repeat for additional molds. Place mold on smooth level surface. Following package instructions, mix Faster Plaster and pour into mold covering foam shape. Fill mold to the top. When plaster is solid to the touch, carefully turn mold over and release plaster. Use tip of pin to help pull foam shape from plaster. If needed, use blunt end and edge of toothpick to clean up design. Following package instructions use microwave to speed up drying if desired. Apply alcohol ink directly from bottle to imprint areas. Squeeze a few drops of alcohol ink on palette and mix with water to create a color wash. Brush wash onto remaining surface of plaster. Let dry. Adhere magnet to back of tile. If desired, apply coat of 3D Lacquer to raised stamped area of mini-tile. Let dry overnight.

Inspire Tile

IAH-226InspireFlowerCoasterInspire Floral Tile by Tiffany Windsor for http://www.inspiredathome.com

When I was shooting my Faster Plaster How to Mix and Pour video this week, I grabbed this texture plate that I had never used before for the on-air demo.  I LOVE the way these words look on this Faster Plaster coaster tile but I wasn’t sure how I would use it.

Then I just started playing with some other FasterPlaster pieces that I had made including an embossed mini-tile and a poured on-texture plate piece and it all just came together!

So how do you make this project?  First, take a look at our eBook – Faster Plaster: 50+ Fabulously Fun, Fantastic and Fresh Ideas. In this book, you will find the technique for pouring the coaster with the texture plate, how to use pre-cut craft foam shapes to emboss into mini-tiles and how to pour on texture plates.  Then, you can watch any of over 20 videos that we have available to see these techniques in action.

After you have learned all these techniques, here’s your shopping list for the specific supplies I used on this project. All of these products were found at my local craft store and those that are highlighted are also available through the Inspired at Home Marketplace:

Faster Plaster
Chantilly Lace Texture Maker by Studio by Sculpey
Coaster mold by Plaid
Texture Plates – Double Sided Assortment II by Fiskars
Bite-size Brownie Squares Silicone Baking Mold by Wilton
Craft foam flower – self-adhesive, pre-cut (you can find these in the kids department at the craft store)
Adirondack Alcohol Inks by Ranger – Wild Plum, Citrus
Staz-On Ink by Tsukineko – Jet Black
Rubber stamps – any small letter set plus large stamp with multiple images or floral design(s)
3D Crystal Lacquer by Sakura

I used Aleene’s® Liquid Fusion™ Clear Urethane Glue to glue the layers  together.

Have fun! >>Tiffany
