10 'Molding and decoration of rounds

Using a craft knife, cut 5 cm pieces from the cardboard roll (sketch 1). Fill a basin with lukewarm water. Dip the plastered strips and cover the boxes (see on the page plaster tapes: instructions for use). Cut strips of 2 cm wide that you roll on themselves to form cords. With these, make different patterns for each round. Let dry 6 hours.

10 'Painting

After drying, paint each round with a different color. With the paintbrush lightly charged with paint, paint the reliefs in gold.
