Plaster Casting

I did the plaster Casting activity with my boyfriend in Huntington Beach. 

There was a lot of wet sand from recent rain so it was pretty easy to make the mold. I made him do most of the digging but we used my foot. It was hard to take my food out of the mold without having the sand collapse into the mold so I pointed my foot down at an angle. 

We mixed the plaster and then poured in the mold and overfilled it a lot so it would be big on the top and easier to scoop out. 

We asked a girl building a sandcastle nearby to watch the hole and make sure no one messed with it. 

We killed our 30 minutes by walking to wahoos and getting tacos. When we came back we dug it out and it turned out better than I thought it would, it actually looked like a foot. Overall it was a fun project and a good excuse to enjoy this nice weather at the beach.
