1. Get your stuff together
2. Find some footprints
3. Prepare the site
4. Prepare the plaster of paris
I mixed water with the plaster of paris. I had measured the right amount before, but it got thicker faster than I thought, so dad had go down to the stream to get more water to dilute it down with and I had to mix it up fast with a tea spoon to make it smooth and without air bubbles. At the end I tapped the container to make air bubbles come to the surface.
5. Pour it in and leave it
6. CAREFULLY take it out
7. Leave to dry for three more days
8. Finished !
I am really happy that I got some really good plaster casts now but i will definitely know what to do differently next time. This was my first go at doing plaster casts and it did not go perfectly but I am still very happy and I would do this again. If I could change something it would be maybe bringing more water and making the mixture more quickly so I could pour it before it starts to harden.
