In the creation of my plaster cast hand there were several steps taken to insure its success. First we had to come up with a pose that we wanted to have our hand do. Then we cut strips of plaster cast to put on each others hands. Our partners dipped the strips into water and placed them on our posing hand until everything was covered. To make the cast better you need to squeeze the water off of the strip before placing it on the hand. After waiting for the cat to dry we pulled the cast off and painted it.
