LiquiStone Water/Powder Ratios

LiquiStone Water/Powder Ratios

The Simple Answer

A good general rule of thumb is to use 2.3 times as much LiquiStone as water- measured by volume. That means that for every 2.3 scoops of LiquiStone you're going to add 1 scoop of water.

The "scoop" you use can be any measuring device you want. NOTE: An 8 fl.oz. cup of LiquiStone weighs about 250 grams, about 8.8 ounces or about 0.55 pounds.

The Slightly More Precise Answer

As always, there are tweaks you can use for different types of projects to make this better.

There are two different types of molds: Bucket Molds and Layup Molds

  • A bucket mold is like a hand casting where there is a hole to fill with casting material. For bucket molds, we like to have a thinner LiquiStone mix so it flows better into the mold. For a bucket mold use just 2.2 times as much LiquiStone as water.
  • A layup mold is like a face casting where the mold is like a bowl. These we like to have a thicker mix so it will stick to the sides of the "bowl" so the edges don't get too thin. For a layup mold use 2.4 times as much LiquiStone as water.
