Accu-Cast has worked out some very clever lifecasting buckets for doing hand castings.
This is the 1 Quart Hand Casting Bucket designed for doing child hand casting (up to about 8 years). Bucket dimensions are 5 inches tall by 5 inches in diameter.
These buckets are made of very sturdy plastic so they should be good for scores of hand casts. For ease of use, we have cut the side of the bucket from top to bottom. A piece of tape holds the cut closed during the hand casting but simply removing the tape allows the alginate slug to fall out easily for un-molding your hand cast.
The buckets are translucent so it is easy to tell if one or more fingers are touching the inside of the bucket during the procedure.
Available in two sizes:
