This offer is for a large full kit for creating a
replica of a FACE in Casting Plaster
Despatched same day if you pay by 12
Please note overnight delivery is mainland UK only (excl. Highlands).
It will also do for other
smallish round or flat adult body parts like a breast. Or you might
like to reproduce a small cherished sculpture. Unlike cheaper kits, this kit contains the
essential ingredients to complete a casting including alginate, casting
plaster and metallic paint. Most importantly it contains a fantastic help sheet with detailed instructions, put together by experts.
The kit contains
1. A 450g bag of Colour Change Chromatic Dental Alginate. It is sealed new and fresh - just bought direct from the supplier so it will have a good shelf life (years) until opened.
2. 3 x 6cm Modroc Plaster bandage.
3. 3 kg of Fine Casting Plaster.
4. An Essential General Help Sheet.
5. A Dedicated Face Casting Help Sheet
6. A 59ml pot of top artist quality metallic paint. Choose from ANTIQUE COPPER METALLIC, GUNMETAL METALLIC, ANTIQUE GOLD METALLIC, BRIGHT GOLD METALLIC, IRIDESCENT SILVER AND IRIDESCENT GOLD.
Note that our super skinsafe alginate is relatively slow setting. Our
alginate takes 3 minutes for the moulding process (start to finish)
which you really need for this process. You also have a generous mixing
time of 2 minutes. Some alginates take half that time which is simply
not enough. So BEWARE OF THE COMPETITION - check out mixing times.
THIS ITEM IS VERY HEAVY - HENCE THE POSTAGE AND PACKING PRICE> PLEASE ONLY PURCHASE IF YOU ARE HAPPY TO ACCEPT THIS POSTAGE AND PACKING PRICE AS GOOD FEEDBACK IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO US. We are happy to combine postage and packing if you buy more than one item - remember to request a new invoice before you pay and wait for us to update it!
If you are moulding an adult body part with body hair in close proximity you will need to get and use petroleum jelly to prevent the alginate from sticking to it. For a face cast, a disposable plastic shower cap to keep hair tidy and covered is useful. The instructions tell you what to have ready and what other items you will need before you start.
We supply 3kg of casting plaster which is more than enough but it is the best value for money. Remember the Alginate is for making the mould only. After making the mould, your model must keep the mould in place on his/her face while you wrap it in Plaster Bandage. This is to freeze the mould shape otherwise it would just flatten out when taken off the face. Finally having secured the mould and removed it from the face, you then need to make a casting from your mould. To do this you need casting plaster which is supplied with this kit.
Finally, you may also wish to paint your finished masterpiece. After making the casting let it dry thoroughly then paint with the supplied brilliant metallic paint. Then you can varnish your finished product if necessary. Varnish protects the finished product.
