We have 48 years of experience making alginate. Whatever you want to make a mold of, whatever technique you want to use- we know about it and have an alginate that would be perfect.
For 2018, we have a new shipping system that should make it possible to get orders out faster. With a combination of UPS and USPS, we can offer you the lowest shipping rates available. Details available in our shopping cart.
Great Customer Service
Accu-Cast has incredible customer service. If you have problems or questions, give us a call. We actually talk with our customers to help them get started or to help them get back on track. Contact us.
Our main gig is making alginate. Our formulas are the direct result of listening to our customers. When they wanted something to work better- we worked until it did. We don't spread our attention over lots of other types of products.
We've worked closely with artists, sculptors, special effects makeup artists, taxidermists, prosthetists, crime labs, hospitals, zoos, schools, theatres and people looking for an extraordinary experience.
More Alginate Formulas
We make 10 retail formulas of alginate with a wide variety of setting times and working properties- each designed to be perfect for a certain type of job.
Group Hand Portraits
For those of you who are just learning this fascinating art form, we offer LifeCasting Kitsthat contain everything you'll need except water and a body part to cast. We have found that customers have a much higher initial success rate using one of our kits the first time- which, of course, makes the whole thing much more fun. After you learn the technique with one of our kits, we recommend that you purchase the bulk materials for your subsequent castings to save money.
With Lifecasting, your imagination is really the only limiting factor. Artists have found thousands of different fascinating castings to do with various parts of the human body. From toes to ears and everywhere in between, the human body is a wonder and has long been the subject of artistic representation. Our website contains a wealth of knowledge on various types of lifecasting projects and the materials needed to do them.
Accu-Cast encourages you to do your research and look carefully at our competitors' products and prices. You will not find a more comprehensive selection of alginate products at a better price anywhere. One of the things you are paying for with our competitors is an expensive, printed outside box. We forgo the printed box and save you the difference.
Why do a LifeCast?
There are a thousand reasons to do a LifeCasting. Infant or baby hands (they won't be this cute forever), birthdays, family group hand portrait, bachelorette parties, weddings, holiday gatherings with family, do your parents' or grandparents' hands (don't regret it when they're gone), pregnant belly, summer camp project, a school art project, etc., etc., etc.
Our products are used in Hospices throughout North America. A hand casting of a hospice patient holding hands with their spouse or child quickly becomes a treasured family heirloom.
What we're saying is that there is ALWAYS a good reason to do a lifecasting. We recommend you learn how to do it so you'll be ready to ACT when the moment comes.
