I.      Follow preparation instructions on the pouches of plaster mix. Knead pouch with fingertips until lumps disappear. Add a little more water if necessary.

2.     Pour contents of each pouch into the reusable mold and tap it gently 3 or 4 times on a table top so mixture settles into all mold cavities.

3.     Allow filled mold to dry for at least 1 hour. Then, by gently pressing all around the edges of the mold, separate mold and casting until it pops free.

4.     Paint your fossil cast using the picture on the package as a guide.

5.     Painting tips:

For Pterodactylus & Kueichosaurus: paint fossil background lighter color and raised bone structures the darker color

For Massospondylus, paint raised bone structures the lighter color. Fill in cavities with the darker color.

6.     Displaying tips for your “fossil”: display your fossil on mini easels, shelves, or on the wall by purchasing adhesive hooks at your local craft or hardware store.
