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

NEW! Larger Size! The new bucket dimentions are 8" tall by 8" in diameter to better fit two adult hands in more positions- PLUS 50% more molding material.

This plaster casting kit for a pair of hands contains the materials to do 1 casting of the following types:
2 Adult Hands (Couple's Hands, Wedding Hands, Anniversary Hands, Praying Hands, Friends, etc)
2 Adults + up to 2 Children (Ages 10 and under)
3-4 Children under age 12

Included with this kit: Plastic molding bucket, Step 1 molding powder, Step 2 casting stone, fine sandpaper, course sandpaper, demolding stick, detailing pin and detailed instructions.

Optional Display Base: A display base can be added at a discount. Some couple hand castings will fit on a 6" round plaque such as those with small to medium hands/wrists and/or in castings where the wrists are as one unit with go gaps. For castings that include larger hands/wrists, a third adult or a couple of children, you will need the larger 8" square plaque. 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.

Optional refill (casting powders only): to create an additonal unique statue. It 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.


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: 8" Tall and 8" in diameter

For a larger kit, check out our
Keepsake Hands XL kit (10" tall x 10" in diameter), or consider our bulk casting materials along with a custom container of your own.

Quantity discounts are available on the purchase of 2 or more. Click ''view quantity discounts" above for details.

Amazing details! February 13, 2019
Reviewer: Lee  
Amazing detail. Turned out beautifully. Read, read, read the instructions. Even read the other reviews to listen about what others had trouble with to make it easier on you when you do it.
We must've read the directions 50 times before doing it. I read all the reviews to get pointers from others.
It was easy to do. We didn't have any issues during the process. It will make a mess but can be easily cleaned up. Just prepare your area.
Practice your pose in the bucket several times. Buy 1 gallon of distilled water. 12 cups of it goes to making the mold and 3 cups of it goes to making the plaster. The colder your water is during the mold making process the long you will have to remain still and posed inside the bucket. It took our mold about 5 to 6 minutes to set. Be ware the mold making process is very important and you must remain still during this process. If you are hunched over your back will start hurting. Try to practice and make sure you are standing in a position you will be confortable in for several minutes. We had minor issues with this part. However, the amount of discomfort experienced during setting the mold was worth the finished product we got. This turned out AMAZING! Love it!!! I cant stress enough to follow instructions. We allowed the plaster to cure for 2hrs before the big reveal. I am writing this review before the 7 day required for drying time. This is well worth the money it cost. The memory created with this kit is not replaceable!

Wonderful! February 2, 2019
Reviewer: margarita929  
Very easy instructions, and wonderful product! i couldn't believe the detail of the hands when it was complete.
Though i urge anyone with long finger nails to follow the helpful tips. I didn't as much as i should have and one of my nails broke off.

perfect gift January 24, 2019
Reviewer: Amazon Customer  
My husband and I made this couples hand for our daughters Christmas gift. She was so surprised and delighted at our gift to her. It brought tears to her eyes and a smile to her face. She never expected a gift like this and it turned out beautifully.

Worth the buy January 8, 2019
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!
