For my first project in art I chose to make a plaster art piece. I heard about being able to create a hand mold so I decided to create one hand in the shape of the hand sign by Spock. I chose to create a hand in this position so it could show the meaning of the quote (said by Spock), “Live long and prosper.” I have already mixed water and alginate powder together inside a jug. After I stirred the mixture I stuck my hand in, and held it in that position for a long time. Once the alginate had hardened, I removed my hand. Next I made plaster by mixing plaster powder and water (2 cups of powder for every 1 cup of water). Then pour the plaster in and have it set. Once the plaster has hardened, you can pop out the mold. Then start cutting away the alginate until you only have your hand left. What else do you think I should add to my hand?
