There are a number of lifecasting schools of technique, however. Some artist use only plaster bandages to create form without a great amount of detail. this is often the case with pregnancy or belly castings. So it is important to select quality plaster bandages that are creamy when wetted out so that they do not delaminate. Our POP Art banages is a good choice for bandage only life casting work.
Alginate reinforced with plaster bandages is a the choice of many lifecasters. We offer a silica free and a traditional alginate formula, plus a tear resistant alginate called, 'FiberGel' This method only allows the lifecastig artist one cast as the mold is destroyed while the finished cast is removed from it.
There is a third lifecasting method using silicone. EnvironMolds LifeRie silicone is the right choice when you need to make multiple casting. You still will require plaster bandages to reinforce the mold.
