Making Tool of Light

Plasterite is another form of orgonite, so to speak. The beauty of it, besides being similar to the use of orgonite, is that children can easily participate and have some fun.
See Jenny’s short video for more information-
All recipes are guesstimates based off Jenny’s original recipe. The first is closest and the second is using American measurements with my changes in brackets. I found the water amount not enough, too much plaster and sand. The plaster was setting up so quickly, putting in the shells, crystal and gemstones was like trying to shove them into unkneaded clay. One’s humidity and water can mean one needs to tweak the recipe.
Have fun with it.
Lastly will be a great MIY mold release recipe I found! It works well for the plasterite. I will be trying it on orgonite next.

Closest to Jenny’s Recipe (by other maker’s guesstimates)

1000 ml water
750 ml plaster
250 ml sand
2 tbsp sea salt
1 crystal
oil for mold
Oil the mold with olive oil or similar. In a bucket, add water and salt. Add plaster gradually. Add sand. Mix for a minute or two. Pour into a mold. Add a crystal. Add intention.

Plasterite Recipe

(using American measurements)
3-1/3 cups (800 ml) water (crystal tuned) (note: I use 4 cups)
1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
8 cups (1 Kg) plaster of paris (note: I use 7 cups)
2 cups quartz beach sand (25% of total mixture) (One person puts only 1 cup, I use 1-1/2 cups now)
essential oils (ylang ylang a fav)
Mix together water and salt. Gently stir in plaster. Stir in sand. Plop some into mold. Shove in crystals, rocks, shells and drops of EO if wanted and cover quickly with plasterite.
This sets up quickly. The small half-circles are ready in 20 minutes. The cone in about 25-30 minutes. Unmold and set somewhere to dry completely. Do not set on gravel. Trust me. You can paint them or cover them in protective coatings, like shellac. My image has them “raw”. Will shellac them soon.

Mold Release

1 part castor oil (yes, the same stuff grandma forced on some as a child & used in soap-making)
8 parts rubbing alcohol
Put ingredients into a spray bottle. Spray the mold and set aside until the alcohol evaporates, leaving a fine mist of oil in the mold. Proceed to use.

Rather cute reading Debreena’s post, though some of the measurements are a bit strange.
