How Do I Make Plaster Of Paris?

I have a craft fair coming up and I need to make a plaster hand to model jewelry. The thing is, I don't have any glue or flour.

Best Answer

Plaster of paris is made by heating the miniral gypsum to 300 degrees fahrenheit. You will have an easer time finding commercially produced plaster of paris than of finding gypsum. If you are asking how to prepare the plaster I recommend finding a tutorial on youtube. There are many to choose from.
Best of luck
