How would one go about making realistic dermal ridges in a plaster cast that would fool a fingerprint expert?

Hello StevenT and welcome to Artist Forum!

Your query here has an added dimension to me considering there's apparently a growing bounty (http://www.zdnet.com/hackers-crowdfund-bounty-to-hack-iphone-5s-fingerprint-scanner-on-istouchidhackedyet-com-7000020879/) going on for anyone who can crack/hack the latest Apple's iPhone fingerprint security feature.

While I'm sure this is purely coincidental, even if I knew an answer, the questionable legality of duplicating a fingerprin..excuse me, dermal ridges encourages me to demure.

This has nothing to do with IPhones or hacking. I'm a Bigfoot researcher and some track casts, even some that are by now, probably over 30 years old, seem to show derrmal ridge detail. Including what happens to dermal ridges when cut. Some Bigfoot skeptics argue the dermal ridges could be faked and I was just inquiring as to the likelyhood of that:http://www.bigfoot-lives.com/html/bigfoot_footprints.html
