Life Casting Silicone Paste 2 lb. Kit
This is a form of silicone RTV that is skin safe! Use it to make molds of faces and body parts. Brush or smear it on, let it sit for about 10-15 minutes and gently pull it off. We recommend using some plaster bandages to help give the silicone mold support, for minimal distortion of the positive casting.
1lb of part A & 1lb of part B
Mix this stuff 1 part A and one part B. Mix it thoroughly. Mixed silicone is a lavender color with the texture of cake batter. This stuff is quickly replacing alginate as the preferred method for life-casting. It retains an incredible amount of detail, and the mold is permanent, unlike alginate (which only lasts a couple of hours, if you don't destroy it while de-molding it first).
You can build up as many layers as you want, until you are satisfied with the mold. In our own personal experience, we find that two of these kits will cover a full head (as a two-part mold with a dividing wall), or do about 3 faces (as a one-part mold). You may end up using almost twice as much if it's your first time working with silicone. Silicone isn't just for skin, you can also make food-safe molds for chocolate, candy and jello.
You can pour almost any casting compound into the cured mold. Plaster, wax, clay, silicone, urethane, epoxy, polyester and latex all work extremely well in silicone molds.
