My mother broke her wrist just before Christmas, which was a genius plan for getting out of cooking the holiday feast. I offered to decorate her cast, but she said no, it’s got a nice knit sock over it. Those socks can be painted almost as easily as a plaster cast, as these 18 unfortunately injured people show us at Buzzfeed. The title is just a bit misleading, as they enlisted artist friends for the work -I can't picture them painting the casts themselves. You'll see reproductions of famous works, superhero limbs, holiday decorations, and clever illusions to lessen the sting of immobility.

Wish I had a pic of our son's forearm cast - he persuaded a neighbour to do a coloured reproduction of all the muscles and tendons beneath the skin. The surgeons were quite impressed and spent some time checking it for accuracy.
