Sharon,
Thanks for sharing!
I called my husband to see the detail you got on the
hands. He's a sculptor and had never heard of using the
alginate until a couple of weeks ago. He was amazed. I
guess right now his head is trying to figure out where he
can get his hands on this material and how he can use it.

What I like is how the mold separates from the plaster and
how the hands can come out without distorting the mold. Is
it really necessary to fill up with plaster immediately?
Do you know if it can wait overnight?

Thanks again,
Myriam
