How to Make Animal Tracks Plaster Casts:

1. Find a good animal track in soft mud that has dried enough to keep it's shape when you press on it lightly.

2. Lay out all your supplies. Depending on how big your track is, pour about 3/4 cup of plaster into the plastic container, quickly stir in water until the plaster is thin enough to pour yet not too runny. Tap on the edge of the container to get out most of the air bubbles. Do this quickly because the plaster begins to set with in a few seconds.

3. Carefully pour the plaster mixture into the track. Let the plaster set for at least 1/2 an hour.

4. When the plaster in firm, carefully dig under the cast and lift it up. Take it home and let it dry overnight.

5. When the plaster cast is completely dry clean it off with a brush. You may want to paint the cast to make the tracks stand out better.
