This super-sized plaster casting kit has double the materials of our standardKeepsake Hands Kit.
Create a casting of one of the following groups:
2 Larger-Than-Average Adult Hands 3-4 Adult Hands* Family Hands (2 Adult Hands Plus 1-4 Children) 3-6+ Children under age 12
[*It is possible to cast more than 4 full size adult hands if they will fit in the casting bucket. However, it is more difficult to remove the mold from the bucket as most of what will be inside is inflexible stone. If you choose to cast more than 4 adult hands, be extra careful and patient when removing the casting stone filled mold from the bucket.]
Included with this kit: Durable plastic molding bucket, molding powder, casting stone, sandpaper, sanding screen, de-molding stick, plastic spoon, detailing pin and detailed instructions.
Refills: to create an additional statue. A refill contains both the Step 1 and Step 2 powders. One refill can be added to this complete kit at a discount- see selections above. For more refills, see the Casting Supplies category.
Other Items Needed: Large rubber spatula or large whisk (preferred) for mixing molding material, liquid measuring cup, glass or disposable bowl for mixing casting stone
Making the Mold: The molding material is cool setting, nontoxic and non allergenic. Wiggling is not a problem as long the hands remain submerged in the molding material until it sets. The set time is about 4-5 minutes, which includes the mixing time.
Molding bucket dimensions : Approximately 10" Tall and 10" in diameter. If the bucket is not the correct shape or size for your project and you are familiar with life casting, consider our Bulk Supplies.
