CRAFTMILLS EXTRA INFORMATION ABOUT MOULDING ALGINATE

  • Often used in partnership with casting plaster, the alginate forms the mould into which the casting plaster is poured.
  • Our Chromatic alginate is completely safe and non-allergic as it is the same dental alginate used by dentists to make impressions of teeth. Our alginate is easy to use because it changes colour at each stage of the process giving you visible notice of how much time is left to do each stage.
  • A key feature of Craftmill's chromatic moulding alginate is that it has a relatively slow setting time so there is no need to rush when using. Average setting time is 2 minutes but this varies with room temperature. Full instructions are provided with this product.
  • We supply a range of body casting kits that combine casting and moulding products in our Craftmill webshop.
