Hey, i'm looking to make a face cast, what is the setting time on this alginate?
Once mixed you will have 1 minute to mould.When the mix starts to turn white it is setting - about 2min 30secs. Your model must now keep still .It is fully set at about 3min 30secs.

I am looking at making some flexible castings of stone carvings and clay maquettes. Your Alginate Chromatic 151060008 looks suitable, but can you tell me if the set Alginate can be reused? Also what coverage is usually needed, say to withstand stone dust cement being poured into it? Lastly, is this the most economical size you stock of this product? Thanks
Alginate is for one off body casting and cannot be reused. Suggest using latex or silicone to make your mould. Latex Liquid Rubber - A pre-vulcanised emulsion which will air dry on the surface of a master pattern to for a highly flexible thin rubber skin. This rubber skin can then be inverted to form a mould. Latex rubber can be used for the production of moulds for such diverse items as garden ornaments to theatrical masks. Latex is easy to use, strong and will give good definition and accuracy of reproduction. I have sent instructions to your email address.
