This plaster casting kit for a pair of hands contains the materials to do 1 casting of the following types:
- 2 Adult Hands (Couple's Hands, Wedding Hands, Anniversary Hands, Praying Hands, Friends, etc.)
- 1 Extra Large Adult Hand
- 2 Adults + up to 2 Children (Ages 10 and under)
- 3-4 Children under age 12
Optional Display Base: A display base can be added at a discount. Some Luna Bean casting statues will fit on a 6" round or 5x7" plaque such as those with small to medium hands/wrists and/or in castings where the wrists are as one unit with no gaps. For castings that include larger hands/wrists, a third adult or a couple of children, you will need the larger 8" square plaque. Attach with tacky wax, crazy/superglue, epoxy or even a screw.
- Tips: If using glues, first sand the base surface where the cast will be attached. If using a screw, place a screw receiver plug in the cast during the setting phase.
Sealing the Final Cast: Painting and/or sealing your completed statue is not required, but it is recommended if it will be handled a lot. We have included a few of our most popular finishes. [Temporarily unavailable.] All finishes come with a paintbrush. With the acrylic paints, the first thin coat works as a primer and it is best to apply 1-2 thin coats on top of that. The triple thick glaze and the matte sealant are best when applied in 2 thin layers. A simple, yet effective, sealant is PVA glue and water. PVA glue is school or craft glue such as Elmer's. Mix with about 50% water and apply (use more water if it doesn't seem thin enough). This will leave it as natural as possible as well as sealed.
Molding bucket dimensions: Approximately 8" Tall and 8" in diameter
