WK11-ACTIVITY- PLASTER CASTING

So this week, I enjoyed going out to the beach and making my hand figure!

On a Sunday evening, I headed to Seal Beach.

So this is what I did.

1. I dug a hold in the dry part of the beach.

2. I put my hand in the sand and covered it with wet sand. My friends helped my put the sand on. And I made sure its completely covered.

3. I carefully pulled my hand out and poured plaster-mixed water in the hole.

4. I waited 30 seconds until the bubbles disappeared and then covered it with sand again.

5. I WAITED FOR 30 MINUTES.

6. I carefully dug the sand and pulled out my hand figure.

It turned out in pretty good shape and I had fun going out and playing with the sand.

After I got back from the beach I was trying to get the sand off the figure which was extremely hard because the sand was still wet and was stuck to the figure. And then I put too much pressure on my figure and I dropped it…….the fingertips shattered into little pieces………. ;(

But overall it was fun! Glad that I did it!
