Our alginate with a prolonged working time is specifically formulated for lifecasts. Capable of copying forensic detail up to the fingerprints and with an ideal working time of 8 minutes, our alginate is the perfect choice for castings that require absolute detail.
Because it is rather flexible, alginate is mostly used in combination with gypsum to create a shell around the alginate. These can be bought separately on our webshop, or in combination with our lifecasting kit.
Always use with caution when preforming a face cast. The material itself does not stick to hair, but we always recommend using vaseline on hair, if not only safety, but as well for comfort of the model. Always make sure your model can easily breathe through his or her nose. Do not use straws in the nose.
Our lifecasting kit comes with a detailed instruction on how to properly preform a facecast.
