Family Hand Casting Kit - No Paint Finish
BabyRice alginate captures every precious detail of your hand down to the last wrinkle and fingerprint. Once painted, your finished 3d family hand casts will become a favourite family sculpture!
This BabyRice Family Hand Casting Kit contains everything you need to cast up to four adult hands. You can upgrade to a larger kit, containing double the amount of alginate and plaster if you would like to create two sets of family holding hands casts. This is also a great option for novice casters as it gives you the opportunity to practice 3D casting with plenty of alginate and plaster materials in reserve for your final cast.
With everything you need to create two sets of casts of up to four adult hands per cast, this family hand casting kit is outstanding value.
The Standard Size Family Casting Kit includes:
- 1kg BabyRice Skin Safe Alginate
- 1kg Strong Casting Plaster
- 1 x 5L Casting Container
- Cocktail sticks to remove alginate from all the nooks & crannies
- And of course, easy to follow instructions
The LARGE kit contains all of the above PLUS an additional 1kg of alginate, 1kg of plaster and a second 5L casting container
How many hands can I cast?
This depends on the size of the hands! As a guide, using the 5L container provided in the kit, the standard kit contains enough alginate and plaster to create a single cast of:
- up to 4 adult hands
- up to 2 adults and 3 children
- up to 3 adults and 2 children
If you would like to create more than one cast, why not upgrade your purchase to the Large Family Hand Casting Kit. This larger kit contains double the quantity of alginate and plaster, producing two casts of up to four adult hands, when using the five litre bucket to create the impression mould. This means you can have a practice run with plenty of materials in reserve, making this a great option for first time casters.
Our Family Hand Casting Kit contains high-grade, colour changing (chromatic) alginate impression powder, which is totally safe for use on skin. The main ingredient of BabyRice alginate is seaweed and all of our alginate conforms to British Safety Standards (BS 4269 Pt.2:1991) and ISO 1563:1990.
Our alginate has a short working and quick setting time, so you don't have to hang around for long waiting for the alginate mould to set.
Strong and durable
Each family hand casting kit is supplied with Herculite II Plaster, a strong, white, stone casting plaster. Thanks to a fast setting time, Herculite II is the ideal material for 3D plaster casting. The plaster faithfully captures all the details from the impression mould and it dries to a nice white finish providing a fantastic base for painting.
Your choice of finish
This kit does not include any paint. You can choose to leave your cast plain white, although do be aware that painting your cast helps to seal and protect it, preventing dust and damp damaging your cast over time. Our Premium Family Hand Casting Kits are supplied with a pot of black paint, which is used as a base coat and a pot of rich, highly pigmented metallic wax. Choose from: bronze, silver, gold, brass, copper, champagne, pink, blue and rose gold.
