Wax Hand

I remember getting a wax version of my hand at the fair when I was in college.  It turned out surprisingly well, and I kept it in my room until graduation.  I thought Kylen would enjoy making one.  He seemed good with it until his hand started feeling like it was going to "burn off."  I'm pretty sure they had me alternate dipping in cold water and wax, but the lady dipped his hand in the hot wax several times in a row.  Then he tried to pull his hand out too fast and made a few cracks.  It's sitting in his room, although I have a feeling he won't cherish it the way I did mine.
