Topic Subject : Re: Re: Re: Baby casts

hi. smooth on do a silica free alginate called alja safe. it is far more expensive than normal aligate and can be purchased from bentlys. they also sell the body double but for a five minute setting time and getting it off i wouldn't recommend as its shore hardness is pretty tough and isnt very flexible. such young babies should not have the force needed to remove it put on them. I have used it and its more trouble than its worth. Just mix your alginate away from the baby and there shouldn't be a problem. Body double is great for adult feet and using the oil they sell will reduce the thickness to allow it to be spread nicly without air pockets and give you a perfect mould.
