So I got the Pearhead 3D babyprints deluxe sculpture kit with the intention of making some really cute plaster casts of Myla Rae's hands and feet as a keepsake.
So I used up the other pack of gelatin ( only 2 sets in this deluxe kit). This time I got David, to suspend her in the air... while she watches Baby TV. And I hold her foot in the tub of gelatin. OH MY GOD... longest 2 minutes of our lives. AND THEN... when we wiggled her foot out gently after 2 minutes, the bloody inside of this mould was still too soft and hadn't formed properly. Arse.
But to salvage the plaster (it's coloured to match her skin tone u know!) that came in this kit, I'm going to buy some plastercine (playdough) ... probably $2 from Daiso and use that to squish over Myla Rae's hands and feet to form a mould. And then pour plaster in that. Should work fine. But I won't be able to do a whole cast (cos I can't wiggle her out without deforming the mould).. will just make do with some hand and foot impressions and fill those in with plaster.
Ok update you soon once I complete this project Plan B!
