Instructions
1. Place the wreath ring on your table or work surface. Trim the daisies until they lay flat on the ring. Arrange the daisies around the ring, then glue them in place and allow the glue to dry.
2. Measure 2 cups of plaster into a mixing bowl. Pour 1 cup of water over the plaster, then slowly mix together with a craft stick until you’ve reached a smooth consistency. Gloves and a drop cloth or paper are important for keeping your skin and work surface safe during this step.
3. Turn the medallion upside down, then place it in the plaster. Cover all of the surfaces, then place the medallion right side up on the drop cloth or paper. Allow the plaster to dry.
4. Once dry, sand any rough edges around the inside and outside of the medallion.
5. Paint the centers of the flowers with yellow glaze. Allow the glaze to dry.
