This imprint of a child's foot is made from plaster compound which is filled in a square papier-mâché mould.
Guide step 1
Step 1.
Use an appropriately sized mould depending on the size of the foot or hand you want an imprint of. We used a papier-mâché box measuring 21.5 x 10 cm, H: 5 cm for this imprint of a child's foot. Line the box with ordinary clingfilm.
Guide step 2
Step 2.
Pour water into a bucket and sprinkle plaster compound slowly until it forms a peak at the surface of the water. Leave it for about 8 min.
Guide step 3
Step 3.
Stir well until air bubbles form on the surface. NB: Plaster generates heat during hardening (the larger the quantity, the greater the heat).
Guide step 4
Step 4.
Be well prepared for the next steps as plaster hardens quickly. Pour the mixture into the mould.
Guide step 5
Step 5.
To make the hole for hanging, push a glue stick into the top of the plaster mixture. (Support the glue stick during drying). Make the imprint of the hand or the foot in the wet plaster. Leave to dry for approx. 1 hour, remove the shape from the mould and tie a piece of leather cord through the hole.
