  • OT: Suggest some fun projects with casting plaster?

    I have a bag of casting plaster and want to do some fun projects with my kid. Any of you have any experience making molds?

    you had to ask...?

    hand prints, foot prints, faces...if you want to cast body parts, apply a very thin coating of baby oil/mineral oil to the skin before coating with tthe plaster.If you are doing faces, remember to insert straws in both the mouth and the nostrils.

    for hand print/footprint (child size) use a pie tin or other disposable dish, fill partially with plaster...leave adequate room for fluid displacement...you can add more, but dealing with overflow is a PITA

      Maybe next weekend. Spent most of this weekend sanding drywall joins and priming walls and ceilings.
