Severed Fingers

Check out these babies…

Oooooh!!!! Spooooooky!

I made severed fingers over the weekend! I wish I worked in an office because you know I’d slip one of these guys into a co workers desk just for kicks and giggles!

Wanna’ make some? I know you do!

Go get yourself some of this:

  • Art Plaster, use a coupon!
  • some small plastic disposable cups
  • You know that stuff your dentist used to make molds of your teeth as you try your hardest not to choke, drool and die! It’s called ALGINATE. I asked my dentist if I could buy some off him and he was happy to help! I paid $10 for a jar. You can do an online search as well!


First mix up equal parts Alginet and water. Use cold water. Warm and hot water will make it settle up too quickly. Stick your fingers in the goo!


After two minutes you should be able to pull your fingers out leaving perfect molds of your wrinkly little digits!

Mix the art plaster according to the instructions and pour it into your finger hole molds!

ok…now don’t totally laugh but I made a video of how to extract the fingers from the mold! Yes it took us like 10 takes! Yes I could not stop laughing! and YES I was holding a baby while I was filming! But for the sake of this post I’ll let you all see it! Please forgive my pronunciation of “Finger!” I know! Sadly this was the best take!



I let my fingers set for about an hour before I popped them out of the molds and
this is how they looked! Pretty cool huh!?!

I then dusted them with eyeshadow to give them a more realistic look.

And now they sit under a glass dome waiting to freak someone out!

    Where in the world did you get all of your brilliance from?! Honestly, it's astounding.

    I'm over here avoiding that Alginasty for all my life and you find a way to bring it home with you! To great effect(affect?) I might add….

    I'll just bet your jeans ALWAYS look great on you, too. I just bet.

    How fabulous! What a brilliant idea… shame I don't know anyone to play this trick on. The UK is only just catching on to Halloween, unfortunately (we're way behind on this kind of thing – what we have is Guy Fawkes Night, aka Bonfire Night, on 5th November).
