Sculpteze Plastercaster Kit

$49.95

The kit comes with the seaweed moulding powder and fine casting plaster plus detailed instructions that are easy to follow.

There is enough seaweed powder to make 3 litres of moulding gel, this is enough to mould coupled hands or a small family. Or you can split the materials and make several smaller sculptures like baby/childs hands or feet, or a face, or even your pets paws!!

Description

CAPTURING VERY FINE DETAIL IN A SCULPTURE TO TREASURE

Contents of Kit:

450 gm SEAWEED MOULDING POWDER (makes 3 litres gel)

2 Kg Casting plaster to fill the mould(s) and create your sculpture(s)

The kit comes with detailed instructions.

Here is brief version.

You mix the seaweed moulding powder with water. As you mix it changes colour, signalling the time for you to dip your model into it. (It is a medical grade product and totally safe for your skin).

Hold still for 30 – 45 seconds and it sets like a thick jelly to create the mould. It comes away cleanly from the skin. Mix the included plaster and pour it in.

An hour later, peel the gel away from the plaster to reveal your sculpture.

To prepare:

You need to use a container that closely fits your sculpture subject.

You can use any plastic or foil (not glass) container you have at home or you can pick up cheaply from bargain shops.

* have a look in your cupboards as you will most likely have something. 🙂 I have even used cardboard box lined with plastic bag, it only needs to be watertight for short time. Foil or plastic are best as they are easier to remove when the plaster is set.

EG: for two hands you might use a large plastic jug or spaghetti canister

for more hands you’d use a small bucket,

for a face – a small plastic mixing bowl or salad bowl

FIND APPROPRIATE SIZED CONTAINER AND MEASURE HOW MUCH WATER IT TAKES TO 3/4 FILL IT WITH WATER. WHEN THE HANDS ARE PLACED INTO IT THERE WILL BE DISPLACEMENT AND THE WATER WILL RISE.
