When I discovered the Sculptors Guild was sponsoring a life casting workshop at Governor's Island this summer, I decided to drag my son there to make models of our hands. The choices available were finger and face, however, I was reluctant to do the face for I wanted to see the process and I could have cared less about the finger because there is nothing interesting about a finger.
Unfortunately, after waiting several hours for our turn, there was only enough supplies and time to make one hand. Since I wanted the memento of my son's hand, I resigned myself to sticking my thumb in the mold.

Lesson learned, keep an open mind with whatever project you attempt. You never know what the results could be.
