Step 1: Step 1-taking plaster casts
When taking a plaster wrap on yourself or anyone else, it it VERY important that you have some type of liner between skin and the wet plaster. Also a cutoff strip (the gold tube in the pictures) is HIGHLY reccommended. What you do is tape the cutoff strip in place, wrap plaster around the limb and the cutoff strip. Then once the plaster dries, pull the cutoff strip out. What it does is create space to be able to cut the now dried plaster wrap off.
What you do next is staple the wrap back together, add another strip of plaster to seal it back together.
