A few important notes
● Mix the plaster well, to an even consistency.
● Clean the plaster off the ground a couple of hours (or the next morning) after each session.
● If the days are hot and there is plenty of sun, then do a session in the late afternoon when it's a bit cooler.
● Don't let the plaster dry too fast. Keep it damp by gently spraying water over it (once the plaster has gone hard enough so as not to run)
