Once you have mixed together the colored plaster you'd like to use for this Plaster of Paris craft, you can get started with the mini planters.
Stir in water to the bowl, while stirring, until you reached a consistency similar to pancake batter (a little thicker than that is still fine though).
Plaster sets very quickly, so you'll need to work fast.
Pour mixture into silicone mold or scoop it in with a spoon.
Gently tap the filled molds on a flat surface to get out any air bubbles and then aside until hardened (1-2 hours should be fine).
Once they are completely hard to the touch, remove the mini planters from the mold one at a time.
Use a fine sandpaper to sand down the bottom of each planet, if there is any unevenness.
Then let the planters finish air drying for a full 24 hours, if possible.
Next, seal each mini planter with a matte medium, which basically creates a thin layer of plastic so they will no longer be soluble (important if you're going to put plants in them).
Wait for the matte medium to dry completely before planting succulents and cacti.
I found that small succulent cuttings are perfect for this size starter planter. And when the plant outgrows the container, you can replant it in a larger version.
