Luna Bean® KEEPSAKE HANDS
Plaster Statue Kit
Preserve Every Precious Detail!

This plaster casting kit for a pair of hands contains the materials to do 1 casting of the following types:
1 Large Adult Hand
2 Adult Hands (Wedding Hands, Anniversary Hands, Praying Hands, etc)
1 Adult & 1 Infant/Child (Mom & Child, Father & Child, Grandparent & Child, etc)
2-3 Children under age 12

Included with this kit: Plastic molding bucket, 1 bag of molding powder, 1 bag of casting stone, fine sandpaper, course sandpaper, demolding stick, detailing pin and detailed instructions.

Optional refill (casting powders only) to create an additonal statue can be added to this complete kit at a discount- see selection above.

Optional Finish: Painting and/or sealing your completed statue is not required, but it is recommended if it will be handled a lot. We have include a few of our most popular finishes. All finishes come with a pint brush. With the acrylic paints, the first think coat works as a primer and it is best to apply 1-2 thin coats on top of that. The triple thick glaze and the matte sealant are best when applied in 2 thin layers.

Optional Display Base: A display base can be added at a discount. Attach with tacky wax, crazy/super glue, epoxy or even a screw. Tips: If using glues, first sand the base surface where cast will be attached. If using a screw, place a screw receiver plug in the cast during the setting phase.


Other Items Needed: Large rubber spatula whisk, or large plastic spoon for mixing molding material, liquid measuring cup, glass or disposable bowl for mixing casting stone

Making the Mold: The molding material is cool setting, nontoxic and non allergenic. Wiggling is not a problem as long the hands remain submerged in the molding material until it sets. The set time is about 3-4 minutes, which includes the mixing time.

Molding bucket dimensions: 7.25" Tall and 6" in diameter (and tapers down to about 5.5 inches on the bottom).
For a larger kit, check out our
Keepsake Hands XL kit, or consider our bulk casting materials along with a custom container of your own.

Success is in the details. July 1, 2018
Reviewer: Jim V.  
My dad is home on hospice and my mom wanted this to cast their hands. She tried it the first time and it set up before they could do the mold. The instructions say to mix in a bowl and then transfer it to the bucket where the hands are inserted. We found mixing the product right in the bucket was better. After watching some Youtube videos and reading some more we contacted the company and they quickly responded sending us a new bag of molding mixture to try again and gave us suggestions for success. We used distilled water at room temperature and that seemed to help slow the transformation during mixing allowing my parents enough time to get in place. We made sure to remove the miscellaneous pieces before pouring the casting product in. After mixing it, we poured only enough in to coat the mold by turning the bucket sideways and rolling it then we added more, tapped the bucket to bring the bubbles to the surface and repeated until it was topped off. We filled to the rim of the bucket which created a flat level platform for the hands to stand with stability. After removing the molding from around the cast, we made sure to put a small fan on it for several days. We are happy with the detail of the results and service from the company and would recommend the product to others.

Amazing June 14, 2018
Reviewer: Jill  
I have to say that between the instructions and YouTube videos that this item is idiot proof. We bought this for my cousin and his wife. He was in hospice care and she really wanted to have the mold of them holding hands. It worked perfect even under less than perfect circumstances. Only thing I would love to see is a list of the extra items needed to use it in the product description. If I had not had it shipped to my home and read instructions before I took it to the hospital we would have needed to go back out for the added materials.

Worth the buy June 5, 2018
Reviewer: Happy User  
I read the directions 3 times before starting to make sure we didn't mess it up! Worked well for us! No complaints other than my own fault for not tilting the container enough to fully fill one of my finger molds. The rubbery mold came off of my jewelry fine, just took some time because of all the small crevices. Would recommend trying! It was fun!

Amazing June 5, 2018
Reviewer: Ronnie F. from TX  
This molding kit worked really well. I did a cast of my daughter and I holding hands. She is four so she moved her hands around a little bit but the kit set fast enough to capture everything. The detail after pouring and setting the plaster was amazing. The gift recipient didn't believe that I was able to make that myself.
