Decorative plaster for sculpture painting "Karkade" 

Colored plaster to work in the author's technique of Eugene Ermilova "Sculptural painting" color "Karkade". 

Plaster "Karkade" - a long-awaited novelty in the palette, has a particularly bright and saturated cold shade of red. Juicy colored plaster is well suited for creating flowers: poppy, roses, dahlias, tulips, irises, lilies, orchids, zinnias, marigolds, gerberas and gladioli and others. In the volume painting when mixed with white plaster, you can get different shades of saturation of red. When creating colors of complex shades, the Karkade plaster can be mixed and combined with other cool shades of the red palette, such as Azalia, Coral or Bordeaux.

The name of the color of plaster "Karkade" was in honor of the eponymous tea drink. In Egypt, tea "Karkade" is called the drink of the pharaohs, because they believe that it gives immortality and vitality. The petals of the hibiscus from which the drink is made were discovered by archaeologists in the tombs of the pharaohs.

One kilogram of plaster on average is enough for 2-3 small works.

Detailed information about working with decorative plaster is contained in my video courses .

The shelf life of the plaster in a tightly closed package is up to 2 years. Outdoors dries in 1-7 days depending on the layer. After drying, it becomes firm as a stone. Practically does not shrink. Does not crack when dry, subject to proper drying technology (do not use a building dryer)

Available in plaster colors can be found in the catalog. When thickened, it is possible to add a little water and mix thoroughly, without beating.

After complete drying, it is recommended to cover with matte varnish. This will protect the work from moisture and UV rays.

Precautions

  • In case of accidental contact with eyes, rinse immediately with water.
  • During the work it is desirable to use gloves and overalls. In case of contact with open skin, wash with warm water and soap.
  • Do not swallow. Keep out of the reach of children.
  • Waste plaster can not be drained into the sewer. Dispose of as construction waste.
