    • Dust-free; Color-changing
    • Alginate Based; Non-Toxic; Hypo-Allergenic
    • Crystalline Silica Free
    • Once opened, expires approximately 3yrs from date of purchase. (The specific date will be provided on the label). If left in the foil bag, that time is at least double.

Please Note: If you are looking to get refills for a specific kit and especially if you are new to life casting, please order from the Step 1 Refill page to be sure you will receive the exact same amount and mixing directions as the kit. Some kits do not use the average mixing proportions listed on this bulk bag. https://www.castingkeepsakes.com/Step-1-Create-A-...

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 1 ratio 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.

Very Good September 22, 2016
Reviewer: Marty L.  
This alginate is helpful for live face casts. It changes colors to warn you how much time you have to use it. If water is too warm, it goes to full gel in only about 90 seconds. When I used cool water, it went from the lavender stage to the pink stage while I was applying it for about 3 minutes. Then it hit the white color shortly before it all gelled into a solid.

Great July 20, 2015
Reviewer: Jonathan  
Used this to cast my nephews entire foot and it works perfectly. I also used it to do several other body parts and it did great on them too. It has a nice scent and the color changing to see if it is mixed is a great feature!

Best Ever July 15, 2015
Reviewer: David F. from San Antonio, TX  
Best molding experience ever. I was so amazed at the efficiency that this product possesses. It literally catches every single minute detail; add to that the fact that the mold changes colors to let you know its ready, it is a total deal! I seriously loved using this mold it was absolutely fun, and I cannot wait to do more projects with it.
