  • Take your cement and pour it into your dishwashing gloves. If the cement is too dry, difficult to work with, add a small amount of water. Carefully push the cement through the rubber gloves, distributing evenly. Gently tap your rubber gloves to remove any remaining air bubbles.

  • Place your gloves in a plastic bowl to shape them. Use paper or scraps of fabric to shape your cement. Create a 2nd cement hand for a larger two hand planter. Merge the hands together,cut on your gloves where the two pieces meet. Scoop out a small amount of cement to merge the two pieces together.

  • To create a bowl shape, place a piece of plastic wrap over the exposed cement and place a small bowl over the plastic wrap to create the bowl shape. Let your cement cure for 24+ hours. Thicker cement will require more time to cure and dry.

  • Once your cement has dried carefully remove the rubber gloves. Strategically cut the rubber gloves off. Avoid applying too much pressure to the cement when removing the rubber gloves. If a finger is broken during the removal process, reattach it using E6000 glue.
