Memory Trail

Children are the flowers of life !!! And how nice to keep their tiny handles and legs in their hands. And so you want to leave these tiny "paws" in your memory forever. Now in the store a huge selection of sets for creativity, among which for sure you can find a set for making casts of pens and legs, but all these sets are so expensive, and it's much more pleasant and cheaper to create all these miracles with your own hands! All the more, it should be absolutely nothing: 1 glass of salt, preferably shallow - "Extra", but I have a large salt in this master class (as spitefully in one store, why it was not fine salt), 1 cup of wheat flour, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, 0.5 cups of cold water and building gypsum (alabaster).

Next, we shift the" cakes "to the baking tray and make imprint of the handle and leg (if the child is small, then first we put the dough on the handles and legs - we make a mold, and only then carefully, so as not to deform the mold, we spread the dough on a sheet.). The trail should remain clear and as deep as possible. Now put a sheet with blanks in the oven, heated to 70 degrees (not more), and leave for 2.5 hours. Then we take out the blanks and lay them on the battery for a day. Well, our molds are ready.

Pour our molds with the prepared consistency, it should be done as soon as possible, because alabaster freezes fast enough.

Leave overnight to harden the mixture as it should. Then, gently pulling the knife, we get a copy of the "mold". Cut with a knife all the "uselessness" and file the contours with a nail file (do everything very carefully). These are the impressions I had. It is advisable to cover the “cooked” hands and feet with varnish. What to do with the casts further? You decide! It all depends on your desire and imagination! You can paint with acrylic paints (before varnishing), you can arrange everything in a frame, add a photo of your favorite offspring. And you can make casts of a child, mom and dad and put together a “composition” together, again adding photos.
 Memory Trail
That's so easy and without significant costs (you can say from improvised means) you can leave tiny footprints in the memory and plus decorate in an original way, for example,one of the walls of your apartment or children's room (if you arrange everything in a beautiful frame)!
