This alginate is used by pro-handcasting studios throughout the UK and is preferred for the fine detail that is captured. It is a STANDARD SET product giving you 2 minutes mixing time and a further minute to setting (total 3 min.) Special Offer - the more you buy, the lower the cost per bag! Fast, free delivery. THIS IS CHROMATIC COLOUR CHANGE ALGINATE (colour changes to let you know where setting process is up to - full detailed instructions included). All packs are sealed new and fresh - just bought direct from the manufacturer so it will have a good shelf life (years) until opened. Our Chromatic Alginate complies with the latest EU and USA product safety standards (20) for use as a 3D lifecasting material. It was originally designed for dental impressions and was then modified to create the perfect handcasting moulding material. The great thing about using it as well is it changes colour as you work it, telling you what stage you should be at from mixing to applying to setting. What will you need to carry out a handcasting or footcasting project ? If you wish to put a hand/foot casting kit together yourself, as a guide 900g of Alginate will make up to to 0 new baby hands or feet. The older the child; the bigger the hand/foot, then less mouldings will be made from one bag. One 900g bag will make a large adult hand and for an adult foot. Remember the Alginate is for making the mould only. After making the mould, you then need to make a casting from your mould. To do this we recommend stone casting plaster which we also supply - see our Amazon store.
I used them to cast hands to hold my books on the wall during an exhibition and it worked for me.
It makes it so easy that the colour changes, so you know when to put your hand in and it turns white once set.
This stuff is expensive, doesn’t work to desired affect and is a blinding pain to clean up.
