Using the Moulds

CASTING INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cover a flat surface with newspapers and place the mould on top.
  2. Add the water and plaster to a plastic cup. Always plan to overfill the mould. DungeonCraft plaster is mixed in the ratio of 35g of water to 100g of plaster.
  3. Stir carefully, trying hard not to add too much air to the mixture.
  4. When the mix is smooth and no lumps remain, pour into the mould cavities. You should have much more water and plaster mix than is needed to fill the mould level. This allows the water to rise to the top to be scraped off later.
  5. Tap each side of the mould with a heavy object, the handle of a screwdriver is ideal, which will level the plaster and alow it to flow into the hard to reach corners.
  6. Let the mould rest for 5 minutes to allow the water to rise to the top.
  7. After 5 minutes, scrape the top of the mould to level off the excess plaster. Don’t press too hard or the mould will deform and you may lose too much plaster.
  8. Let the mould rest for another 5 minutes and scrape the top of the mould again. This should completely level the mould.
  9. After another 20 minutes (so 30 minutes in total from mixing the plaster), the mix should have set and you to tap the pieces out of the mould. 
  10. You can then start creating your next  batch. These pieces are not 100% set yet and will take 24 hours to fully cure
