    Bulk Materials FAQs (How much product is needed, etc)

    Yield per 1 lb of Powder: About 9 cups (72 fl.oz. or 2.15L) of material

    Average Mix Ratio: 3.5 to 1 (water to powder) by weight [OR about a 1 to 1ratio by volume if the powder is not compressed or packed when measured]

    If purchasing stone to go with this, the following is an estimate: you will need about equal amounts (by weight) for infant castings and double the amounts for adult hands. Other types of castings usually fall somewhere in between. Basic mixing directions included. Note: If you will be mixing more than 1lb at one time, it is best to use a small mechanical (preferably electric) hand mixer of some sort.

    Manufactured in the United States

    Note: This is a molding compound intended and labeled for use in the arts and crafts industry. For an alginate intended for use as a dental product, please see a medical or dental supplier.

Wonderful May 8, 2015
Reviewer: Jim M. from IL  
I used the alginate to create a mold of a hand. It captured every detail, including all the smallest ridges on the finger tips. 1 pound of the material was barely enough though. For the next project, I plan to order at least twice as much.

amazing May 5, 2015
Reviewer: Leah A. from NC  
As long as you don't use too hot of water, this stuff is awesome. Even though I totally messed up in that regard, it still gave me an incredible amount of detail (and lumps -- but once again: my fault: steamy tap water). Also, it smells amazing. Like, it has no business smelling as good as it does.

easy May 27, 2014
Reviewer: Rich from Southpark, CO  
easy to use and almost idiot proof with the color change properties as long as you use the right temp water the stuff changes color for each of the casting steps.
