Good product, no directions.
By Nunyor Beeznus
The pottery plaster worked out fine but contained absolutely no mixing directions, even on the product page. Customer service had to get it somewhere online for me.
Merchant response: Thank you for your feedback! We suggest a ratio of 60 percent plaster to 40 percent water by weight. A favored method is to start with your measure of lukewarm water in a container, and then sift or sprinkle the plaster over the entire surface of the water until it begins to mound above the surface of the liquid. Let the mixture set for 1-2 minutes to absorb, and then gently mix for 3-5 minutes, taking care not to incorporate air into the slurry. Tapping the mixing container or mold will also help release any trapped air and prevent bubbles. For further assistance using this or other materials purchased from Blick, we invite you to reach out to our Product Information Team. Product Specialists are available weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or email@example.com.

Pottery Plaster No. 1
from Wildwood, Illinois
Loved having this pottery plaster delivered to my door for a great price and reasonable postage. I usually traveled to Wisconsin to pick up my plaster and had to deal with getting it in and out of the car by myself. It is the same quality I am used to....the best for making molds. It mixes well, sets up quickly, but not too quickly, and I am anxious to pour my new molds I have made with it. The molds look great with out bubbles. I wish the packaging could be a little easier to open and reopen, like maybe putting it in a big thick ziplock bag.
I ordered blick pottery plaster and I don't know what you se
from reno, nevada
what did you send. I ordered Blick pottery plaster and it came in a brown sack with no, I mean no information. It was not strong enough to remove from mold after 24 hours. I tryed twice to pour up the mould. I ordered and used a sample last year and it seemed OK. I have used Blick products and usually am very happy but not this time.
Merchant response: We are sorry to hear that this plaster did not work as expected. Our Customer Care team is happy to help you with a return or exchange. Please give us a call at 1.800.723.2787. We hope to hear from you soon!

By Mary's Plaster

I like the pottery plaster because it dries harder and stronger than normal plaster of paris. The only downside is there are no mixing instructions. For those people who may use a small amount at a time here is the ratio that I have found that works for me: For every 8 ounces of water you will need approx. 2 1/2 Cups of Pottery Plaster.

Good product - Did not come with mixing instructions, had to look up on the web. Go to You Tube to see best demos on Plaster Mixing.
