DIY Plaster Wall Art
I found this large painting at Goodwill to use for this project. I cleaned off the dust and started.
First start with layering the plaster all over your canvas. I smoothed out the plaster evenly all over to start but you don’t have to. Next grab your gloves and start adding texture. You can make it swirly or wavy, which ever suits your taste.

After the plaster dried I grabbed my paint and started layering different natural colors on top. I used a light tan color and white for this. I didn’t have a specific design to use so I put the paint in random areas and look how great this turned out!
How To Make Plaster Wall Art
Hang your new modern wall art in your home or gift it to a friend. I hung mine in my living room but my daughter loves it so much so I gift her it for her new home.

This one down below is also another one I made. Its small but same technique. I use this one in my laundry room right above my washer and dryer. Its a simple, clean, easy look.

I’ve been dying to try this, but been going back and forth about what medium to use. When you say plaster, are you referring to Plaster of Paris or Venetian plaster? I mean, who knew plaster could be confusing? But, I am. 😁
Thanks for sharing this. It turned out beautifully!

I’ve always used Plaster of Paris and I love it!
Love this!! I’ve been wanting to do one and have a few old canvases sitting around. Thanks for the inspo!
Love the calming beauty of this simple artwork. Can you tell me what type of paint you use on top of the plaster? Thank you!
Rhonda Hallstrom says
We used chalk paint on top
It’s so calming & peaceful ❤️

Well who woulda thunk! How cool is this project! I have a canvas that huge with the ugliest floral design on it and this will be the perfect way to transform it!! Thank you for your creative ideas!!
