New exhibit of plaster cast hands of artists.

Now you can see some of our collection of plaster cast hands of artists who visited museum for the events.

We modeled them at the museum on the day they visited.

(Autographs are the dummies)

The picture below shows you how we made them. We modeled artist's arm with them holding pencil shaped object. It only takes a few minutes in the liquid plaster.
