I made these for the halloween07 swap,

this is a C&P from how i explained in the swap gallery how i made them
(i will post a tut with pics later, when i get a little time to make a couple more!) Wink

the hands were made with plaster, and papermache, which i made from left over pages of printed things my boyfriend was going to throw out (the paper makes them a little lighter, and less shatter-ish)
I just mixed the plaster as directed (with a little extra plaster added in, cuase i'm impaitent like that)
then added in the papermache (i made sure the paper was totally dry before adding into the plaster!) and mixed it good, before pouring it into rubber gloves
the plaster sets pretty quick, so after an hour or two i took them out and stuck them in the oven at 175 for a day and a half to thoroughly dry out,
then i covered them with much paint (of many colors) and to keep the paint on, i coated them a couple times in a polycrylic (waterbased wood varnish)
and then used resin, tinted and colored with various red colors (and mica powders)
i had to do a couple layers of blood, as they kept getting too thin, I think if i could have just let it sit for like 10-15 minuets before dripping it over, it would have been thick enough! i did use a paint brush to cover the ends of the fingers and the places where the fingers should have been (which i didnt cover in paint, which made it pop more and look bloodyer)
then i let them sit another day and a half for the resin to not be tacky.
