Get a tray of sand and print your hand in that then pour the plaster of Paris on top of the sand print. Wait till dry then brush the sand off.

  • Try putting playdough (bought or home-made) into the bottom of a suitable size container lined with cling film, make the impression of your hand in the dough then pour in plaster of Paris. Allow to dry completely then remove from container (the cling film makes this easier), remove dough and 'voila'! Paint and/or varnish if desired.

Do not "stick your hand in a bucket of plaster of Paris" as someone previously suggested!Plaster of Paris can get really hot while setting and you would end up severely burning your hand...A slightly more sensible approach is to make a mould of your hand using something like clay or alginate and then use that mould to create a plaster of Paris duplicate of your hand...

How do you dissolve plaster of Paris?

"I think vinegar is supposed to work.Lawren1The CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics (65th ed. Special:Booksources) lists plaster of Paris (calcium sulphate half-hydrate, CaS04.1/2H2O) as soluble in acid, ammonium salts, sodium thiosulphate (Na2S2O3) and glycerin."I am so surprised that so many people on so many forums, obviously don't have a clue about the chemistry of plaster of Paris. I read in so many places things like "uh, try some kind of acid..."So I have a lot of concentrated chemicals on hand and did lots of experiments with all kinds of acids, both dilute and concentrate, under many conditions and determined that none of my dozen or so acids dissolve Plaster of Paris in any way, but sometimes make it harder.The chemicals which dissolved plaster of Paris are on the basic end of the PH scale, not acid. I first had some success with potassium cyanide, but what really worked better than anything is Sodium Bicarbonate. Makes sense. The sodium in baking soda hooks up with sulfur in the plaster, and the carbon hooks up with the calcium in the plaster.TO BEST DISSOLVE PLASTER OF PARIS PLACE IT IN WARM WATER WITH LOTS OF BAKING SODA.Don't use any acids or it will only defeat the process.Now what really amazes me is that the answer is so simple and safe, and surely some people must know it, but it apparently cannot be found on the internet, until now.Or you can chisel it away because it is soft enough to do so.
