Hello all- I am making a damp box for my home studio, using a plastic storage bin with a lid. Following directions here on the forums and elsewhere, I used pottery plaster to form roughly a 2 inch bottom in the bin. All of the instructions I've read recommend popping the set plaster out, using a surform to remove sharp edges, cleaning up the walls of the box, then putting the plaster back in. My question is - how critical is it to pop the plaster out and remove sharp edges? There don't seem to be many at all, and honestly, the pad of plaster is heavy and will be difficult for me to handle. What is the risk if I don't smooth out the edges? Thanks in advance for your input.
