This is a 10-pound bag of our 590-IBG alginate.
590-IBG (5 minute @ 90 degree water) was developed specifically for face casting. Ultra-low-slump formula makes it go on much more like cake frosting rather than pancake batter- resulting in faster application and less waste. We can do a complete face mold with just 3-4 ounces of 590-IBG alginate. Our competitor's all recommend one pound of theirs. Its a no brainer.
590-IBG also has our "gradual set" feature which lets you know when the alginate is about to set so you can embed your faux mohair or plaster bandage strips in the surface in plenty of time.
A more advanced project that is perfect for 590-IBG is the complete Head Casting.
Our Genesis-V alginate is also good for faces and heads.
