Advice 2: How to make casts of hands and feet children with their hands
Arms and legs kids such tiny and touching that I would like to keep the memory of their casts. For this you can use one of the following recipes:
1. Prints can be left in the plasticine or weight for modeling. This method is suitable for kid older than one year. To this quite difficult so good to stretch a lot, so a light touch of baby hands or feet left a strong imprint.
2. Perhaps the most popular way to make a cast of hands or feet – use salt dough. Mix 1 Cup flour, 1 Cup salt, 2 tablespoons butter and ½ Cup water. Cool and knead homogeneous dough. If necessary, add a little more water to the dough become more pliable. Roll out the dough to a thickness of 2 cm and form the shape (it can be round, square or perhaps heart). Attach the handle or foot of your child to the test and leave it on for a few seconds. Then gently remove the handle or leg. If the first impression was not very good, roll the dough out again and start all over again. Make a hole for the clove or ribbons. The resulting imprint leave to dry at room temperature for 2-3 weeks. After that, the cast can be painted with acrylic paints and varnish. Instead of prolonged drying can bake the print in the oven. However, in this case, the dough can rise and mold will be distorted.
