Holding hands is an expression of adoration and protection between loved ones that’s often done without much thought. But the tender moment can now be preserved as art, bringing the often overlooked moment to life.
The kit includes a mix that creates a rubbery mold of a user and loved one’s hand. The kit also includes plaster, which is poured into the mold to capture every detail, including fingerprints and fingernails. It’s really remarkable.
The concept first gained attention when TikTok user @Sherryl.Lynn filmed the process of using the kit with her husband, who is in the Army. The video of their crafty casting went viral on TikTok, gaining 1.7 million likes on the platform.
With 4.5 stars and more than 2,000 ratings, the casting kit used in @Sherryl.Lynn’s viral TikTok is an Amazon Choice product. Many buyers have purchased the kit to use with children or romantic partners to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays or holidays. And the results are unexpectedly realistic.
