Lots to choose from


Plaster Fun House are not just at Brighton. Their pop-up shops have appeared at Hallett Cove Mall, Marion Shopping Centre and Castle Plaza.

Once you have made the difficult choice of what to paint, everything else is easy.

What shall I choose?

Painting instructions are on your table. Everything is clearly labelled. If you don't quite like how the colours look on your model, you can paint over them! The next step after painting is to dry your model.

What colour glitter?

 

Then it's off to the counter to choose accessories or glitter.

Your model is sprayed with gloss. This really brings the colours to life and makes even amateur artists reflect light like Turner.

On my first visit I took a four year old friend. She created this beautiful rainbow pony.

One wasn't enough fun. She went on to paint a dog and can't wait to visit Plaster Fun House again. Next time we visit, I think I will paint a lighthouse.

Brilliant article and photos Jenny (looking at your photos, it felt like I was really there - always wondered what it was like at Brighton Plaster Fun House: my son has been with his school's Vacation Care group).

What about the NEW Plaster Fun House at Brahma Lodge ?
It's just opened up. Right next door to the Brahma Lodge tenpin bowling centre
on Clayson road, Salisbury East.
It's the biggest store with the largest range in Australia !
We went with two families today and it was great fun. And cheap too !
