10:44 am Having Fun, Homeschooling

And yesterday, there was art. Art of the plaster and paints sort. We made frescoes. I had never worked with plaster of Paris before, so that was quite interesting. I will tell you that it is lighter than water, and so you need more of it by volume. The instructions are to mix by weight. Because, yes, we all have precisely calibrated digital scales in our kitchen, right? Whatever.

I took pictures. Now I can prove to you and them that we do fun stuff in school, occasionally.

    You make plaster of Paris, and you paint on it while it is still a little damp. Loads of fun! We put ours in pie plates.
