Wages for a hand model can vary from $300 to $1,000 or more per hour. The term "parts models" describes the profession in which legs, feet and hands are the focal point of a picture. An episode on the television show "Seinfeld" has helped the occupation grow in popularity.
A parts model's job is to be the prop that sells a product to customers, so limbs must be positioned in a way that represents emotion. A well-known use of a hand model to sell a product is the cover of Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight," which features a woman's hands holding an apple.
Becoming a hand model requires exceptional hands with no veins or blemishes. Therefore, potential hand models should care for their skin by maintaining a healthy diet and moisturizing regularly.
