We specialize in producing do-it-yourself casting kits which come complete with plaster and paints to completely start and finish your project. Do check out our shop if you would prefer to purchase a complete kit.
Do note that this listing is for the alginate only, so you will also need plaster if you don't have any already! The impression mould will deteriorate quickly, so please don't make any moulds if you haven't got any plaster! (We sell the plaster separately in our shop)
Instructions - are sent with each order (in English, German, French & Italian languages) Whichever quantity you choose to purchase, each order will have one set of instructions for the water to powder ratio mix and how to work it.
Mixing Time: 1.30-2 mins from start of mixing Setting Time: At 2 mins, the alginate will start to set - setting time approx. 30 seconds at 30ºC (warmer water makes setting quicker, colder water makes setting slower). 30 seconds is perfect for casting baby’s and pets, it’s not too long for them to keep still! The skin should be lubricated with petroleum jelly to protect hair growth. This is especially important for casting areas where there is a lot of hair, example adults and pet paws. Petroleum jelly will stop the hair from sticking to the alginate mould whilst setting.
NOTE: Plaster should be poured into your impression mould within 15 to 20 minutes of creation. If immediate plaster casting is not possible, the alginate mould should be sealed in a polythene bag or air-tight container along with a damp cloth to keep it moist.
Best Before Date Our alginate is freshly produced for us and will have a minimum shelf life of 20 months.
