This time, I thought that I would try something with some additional "personality" -- I'd wanted learn a different method to make a 3rd hand ;-)
Step 1: Mix the Silicone and apply
Put a 2 foot square of brown butcher paper down on a table so that you don't mess up the table during this process. Place your hand firmly on the paper, and use a Popsicle stick to apply a "beauty coat", a thin coating to the hand. That will allow you to pick up all of the detail. Once the first coat is on, slather the rest on so that your hand is covered.
Wait about 20 minutes for the "fast set" to set.
