No, Eco Pour is not the same as plaster of paris! It looks similar and is mixed with water. However, feedback from customers who have used plaster of paris before say that it doesn’t compare. This is because
Eco Pour has been formulated specifically for art and casting so it is much easier to work with and is more fluid
Plaster hardens way too fast so it doesn’t give you the time to create effects or take a breath whilst pouring!
Once cured the surface on both sides is super smooth. This doesn’t happen with plaster
Plus you can’t pour plaster like resin (you can with Eco Pour) to create textured effects on geodes, trays, coasters etc. So no comparison : )
How does it differ from other similar mediums that create cement/ceramic textures?
Eco Pour is different as it consists of one component. A casting powder. This revolutionary product requires only water to be added rather than requiring an additional activator liquid whilst still producing the same result. This makes it easier to use and creates a smoother finish - so less dreaded sanding!
It always requires less packaging (as there is no need for a liquid activator bottle) making it more eco friendly. Just add some good old H2O mix and pour : )
How can I colour Eco Pour?
Eco Pour can be coloured with any water based pigment - acrylic inks, acrylic paint, pigment powders or our dyes. The links for those can be found below.
How can I seal Eco Pour?
Eco Pour can be sealed to prevent staining and water penetration using any PVA / Acrylic sealer. Some customers also use bees wax and coconut oil. Eco Pour is also compatible with epoxy resin.
