karuna's trumpet: thermoplastic

We went to early service today (even with the time change), dropped Jill at home afterwards so she could run, then the kids and I picked up supplies for school at Home Depot, and then ran to the studio to drop things off. I brought some thermoplastic home so I could do a quick molding of Karuna's trumpet before we met Teresa and Karuna today at Mayfair. I should be able to make Karuna a nice trumpet support from this piece. I looked at the angle that he holds his arm when we dropped the trumpet off. I just need to do some cutting, shaping and then create a nice palm socket that he can insert his hand into.  I'll do a scan of all of this so we can use something similar for people in need in the future.
