Mix the plaster and water together until the liquid resembles frosting or apple sauce.  

Tip: Make sure to smooth out most of the chunks


Pour mixture evenly into the popsicle mold. Add drops of food coloring into each popsicle until you achieve your favorite colors! Mix the dye in with the liquid. Another way to make rainbow popsicles is to make the mixture in different colors first and then add layers into the molds without mixing.

Tip: Work semi quickly, the texture starts to thicken fast!


Cut your giant popsicle sticks in two and place rough end into the molds. Make sure to place the sticks all the way at the bottom for the most support. Then let them dry!

Tip: Takes 35-45 minutes.
