    Lifecasting - hands

    These are GREAT instructions! I did this with my husband, as a test run, and then with my granddaughter several months ago, and it went really well. The detail is fascinating. I'd like to be able to make replica's of my granddaughter's cast for family members, as she's grown some now, and isn't as cooperative, even when asleep. Have you tried making an alginate mold of the hydrostone, or do you think it would stick? If I used a release agent, would it stain the original? Her fingers were slightly curled, so I'm a little bit afraid of breaking the original. I wish now that I had done several at that time. Any suggestions or recommendations?
