Of course using your finished casting as an actual trophy is up to you.
This kit is best for single hand castings for children to adults, or for pairs of young children's hands. The integrated stone base is optional.
This kit contains the materials to do 1 single hand casting child to adult (or a pair of young children's hands) with or without an integrated base and whether or not you hold a small object in hand. Common objects are baseballs, golf balls & artist paint brushes.
If you intend to do a casting with an object in hand, one method of casting would be to leave the object within the casting - permanently. When the hand is removed from the mold, the object is left behind. The casting stone is then poured as normal leaving behind a statue that fits perfectly around the object.
We do show a casting in which the object was removed from the mold (the remote hand). This was possible only because the remote was smaller in diameter than and directly adjacent to the wrist, which gave the remote a path back out of the mold once the wrist was removed. If an object is held with the hand (the most common pose), the object would have to be removed through the opening left behind by the fingers and/or palm, which is rarely possible without tearing the mold.
