Mixing Instructions

  • BEGINNERS TIP: Use cold water for more setting time
  • Use 100g powder to 300ml water, and measure both separately
  • Mix the powder carefully into the water (not the other way round as this can cause mixing problems)
  • Start mixing the solution instantly with a metal/plastic whisk, or a flat spatula.
  • Warm water sets quicker than cold water, so take this into account
  • Approximately 30/60 seconds after mixing, pour the solution into a container, sized correctly for the hand or foot
  • With the hands / feet having had olive oil applied to them beforehand place them into the mixed solution, and move around slightly, making sure the solution has spread into all gaps
  • Keep still for approximately two minutes until the alginate has set a light grey colour
  • Once set, slowly wriggle the hands or feet free (this where the olive oil helps)
  • For optimum results, pour a separate plaster of paris mixture into the new mould as soon as possible (no later than 1 hour)
