University of Memphis art student Chris Reed, was working on a sculpture class project dealing with the crucifix. This hand mold is made from clay and modeled after his own hand. First he made a metal frame of his hand and then molded the clay around it. This project is not yet finished, Chris said that he is going to make a bronze casting of the hand, and to do that he must cut off the fingers of the hand make molds of them ( as you will see in the video below), he said it was easier to do the hand and figures separately and them form them back into one piece.
He is also going to add a nails in the hand, and also mold a pair of feet to go along with the hand.
