About the event
In this class we will be using a casting material called alginate to make molds of our hands. This mold making method is easy and totally skin safe. Alginate captures tons of detail for very realistic casts too! We will cast our hands in palster and be able to demold our hands and see the results within 20-30min of casting. This process can be a bit tricky to get right the first time, so be prepared to take a second go at it! Plaster takes 48 hours to fully dry, so we will meet next week (October 7th at 1pm) to finish painting our hands so they look CREEPY. You can even carve hands to have realistic looking scars if desired. If you do not want to come to the second session that is ok too! Just take your hand home after casting and be sure to wait a full 48 hours before decorating with your own supplies. This class is all ages. It can be a bit tricky with toddlers because they have to be very still for several minutes while the mold sets up, but we dont mind giving it a shot! This process can be messy, so wear play/work clothes if you can. We can provide aprons. The cost for this class is $30 and includes all materials.
