The full torso kit is for those of you wanting a fairly challenging project that produces a casting from the neck down to the upper thighs. While not a beginner project, this kit is the easiest way to learn full torso casting. Kit comes with all the materials a professional would use to make a torso cast. Procedure takes about 30 minutes of the models time and another 30 minutes of your time. The casting can be painted and hung on the wall on a sturdy nail.
Difficulty Scale: 6/10
This kit comes with everything you'll need except for water and a model. The Genesis-X alginate sets in 10 minutes which allows for plenty of time.
EXCLUSIVE BONUS: You get a second bag of alginate with this kit, just in case the first attempt doesn't work out perfectly.
The technique is basically:
- Applying the alginate
- Applying the plaster bandage shell
- Removing the mold
- Pouring the mold
- Finishing the cast
It is best to have an assistant working with you when doing this large a mold unless you have lots of experience.
