Mold is about 12 inches tall. Again let me emphasize that the plaster statue is just there to show you what the mold makes. I made this, and it was quite impossible to get the head out, I had to cut the neck of the mold. But you can simply put some string or tape around it while your plaster is being poured in and is setting up. You could also make a stunning ice statue out of it and would be much easier to get it out of the mold, in that case. If you make a statue of plaster, please put a stick or wire through the length of it to keep the head from popping off when you take your item out of the mold. Also be sure to shake and whack it a whole lot to get the bubbles out. I didn't do any of these things and now I have a fine mess, and I'm done with Kwan Yin altogether, but you can succeed.
