Wk 2 Beachin’ It

This week, we constructed plaster molds of our hands/ feet. As a whole this activity was a lot of fun. It was a bit messy, but the process of creating this mold was satisfying. Even though mine ended up looking like a middle finger, it was enjoyable to create. The most difficult part was insuring the plaster did not set before we had the chance to pour it into the holes we made in the sand. It was my very first time working with materials like this, and in doing so realized that drying plaster is a force to be reckoned with. I’m sure that farther down the road of life, this experience will serve as a solid stepping stone for working with these quick-setting viscous liquids.
