Plain Court Plaster

Plain court plaster hat will not stick and remains flexible: Soak

Isinglass in a little warm water for twenty-four hours, then evaporate

nearly all the water by gentle heat. Dissolve the residue with a little

Proof Spirits of Wine, and strain the whole through a piece of open

linen. The strained mass should be a stiff jelly when cool. Stitch a

piece of silk or sarcenet on a wooden frame with tacks or thread. Melt

the jelly and apply it to the silk thinly and evenly with a badger hair

brush. A second coating must be applied after the first has dried. When

the both are dry apply over the whole surface two or three coatings of

Balsam of Peru. This plaster remains quite pliable, and never breaks.
