What can you use to make a plaster of Paris hand print that you can pop the impression of the hand out of?

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.
