This is a 5-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.

We mixed one cup of (IBG Alginate) into four cups of cold water for a face/ears cast.
While measuring by weight is recommended (how fluffed-up is your alginate powder?) , our mix was perfect.
Better than "slow set" dental alginates, this product will allow adding more powder if you need to (dental alginates form a kind of homogenous blob that resists adjusting the mix), also this set up in a luxurious three minutes, taking a generous thirty seconds to fire-off (set hard).
A very pleasant experience.
