Pour plaster into the cups up to two thirds of their capacity. Stir well so there are no lumps and it has a texture like yoghurt mousse.

Step 4:

Put each coloured mixture into a mould. This mould can be silicone or like the one we used here, which is typical for making ice lollies at home.

Step 5:

Insert the APLI lollipop sticks and let them dry in the sun for a few hours. It is recommended to leave them for 24 hours to ensure that the plaster is perfectly dry.

A tip: Do not pour any leftover mixture down the drain in the sink, as it could solidify and block it.
