There are different kinds and sizes of plaster bandages. What you want to use is determined by the type of project you want to do.


Plaster bandages generally come in 5 yard (15 foot) rolls

Plaster bandages come in different widths

  • 3-inch   (good for small projects like faces and heads)
  • 4-inch   (good for medium projects like heads and torsos)
  • 6-inch   (good for full torsos, but you have more control with 4-inch bandages)
  • 8-inch   (good for full bodies, but you have more control with 6-inch bandages)
  • 12-inch  (really too big for most lifecasting jobs)


  • Regular Set     (set in about 15 minutes- too slow for most lifecasting)
  • Fast Set         (set in about 10 minutes- still to slow for most lifecasting)
  • Extra Fast Set  (set in about 5 minutes- perfect for lifecasting)


We've determined that Extra Fast Set 3-inch and 4-inch plaster bandages are the best for lifecasting so that's what we sell. We sell individual rolls or boxes of 12. If you buy a box, we charge you for 11 and we give you the 12th for free.

We did carry 6-inch bandages for a while but no one bought them.
