Chromatic or colour changing alginate

The picture shows A Lasting Impressions purple colour changing formula. It starts out a light green powder then changes to a bright purple when you add water then starts to lighten when you need to put the hand or foot in it then finally ends up as a bright green telling you can take the hand or foot out of the mould. It's ready to cast.

Everything is non toxic, odorless (unless specified with flavouring),

hypo allergenic, silica free and dustless.

Casting cement also available scroll down for more information

What ever the casting stone or plaster that you use, I highly suggest not to use plaster of paris if  you want your castings to last any length of time. Plaster of paris is very weak and brittle and is also more prone to mould growth over time.

 

Alginate Impression Powder Set Times

Set times are determined by water temperature and mixing ratio.

The warmer the water the faster the alginate sets. This water/time table is based on

4 or 3 to 1 mixing ratio 4 or 3 parts water to 1 part alginate powder by weight.

By Volume Lightly fluffed not packed alginate 1 part alginate to 1 part water. More on mixing ratio's see below.

Most people especially babies don't like cold alginate.

Set Times are also determined by mixing ratio

The good thing about alginate is the you don't have to have exact with measuring..

but keep in mind:

For bucket moulds: Hands/feet

If you mix it too thick you can get voids in the mould.

If you mix it too thin the mixture will have too many air bubbles.

Both causing outies that you will have to carve off of the casting.

 

More Water to alginate makes it set slower

 Less water to alginate powder makes it set faster

Cooler rooms/body temperature of model makes it set slower.

Warmer room or body temperature of model makes it set faster.

Alginate is a powder made from seaweed. I mix it with warm water and  it turns into a  mixture like the consistency of extra thick cake batter, then after a minute or two (just enough time to mix it and put the hand or foot into it)  it turns into a rubbery mould.  Dentists use this product to take impressions of our teeth. When I first started my lifecasting business the only alginate I could find was from dental distributors. These alginates were design for taking impressions of our teeth and have flavouring added to them plus the setting time was way too fast. The other problem was that it was very expensive.

  It is very safe, odorless, warm, comfortable, non-toxic and hypo allergenic.

After testing many different types of Alginate, A Lasting Impression has chosen a very high quality alginate that  you certainly can not buy at your local craft store, it is designed perfectly for taking your precious babies hand and foot castings.
