Fresco Painting

We have been learning about Fresco painting and decided to make one.

Materials needed:
  • Plaster of Paris (powder form)
  • Water
  • Card board
  • Water colour paints
  • Paint brushes
  • Eraser
  • Grey pencil
Mix plaster of Paris to thick consistency
(tried turning this but it's determined to lie on it's side)

Cut thick card board to required size

Spread plaster of Paris onto card board
  • Set aside to dry.
  • Draw your picture with a grey pencil
  • Erase picture leaving a faint outline
  • Mix water colours 
  • Paint picture
  • (Apologies I forgot to take photo's of these steps)

Final product

Have fun making your fresco's
