Processing

Please familiarise yourself with this product first by doing a small test. For example make a coffee cup of alginate and dip your finger in it.

 

The mixing ratio is in weight and not in volume. E.g. mix 100 grams of alginate with 500 grams of water. The 3-D gel Blue can be mixed easily with a mixer until a nice even porridge without lumps is obtained. If you suffer from lumps in the powder we recommend to sieve these out prior to adding water.
Mix the required amount of water with the alginate in one go. If a few lumps are left do not worry. Do not continue mixing too long. Otherwise the alginate will start to harden!

After mixing, push the desired part of the body with the correct position in the mixture. We recommend using a position that entraps as little air as possible. Try to release as many air bubbles attached to the skin as possible by moving the body part or rubbing along the skin. After this try to move as little as possible and make sure you do not touch the edges of the mixing bowl. Wait until it has cured completely within +/- 5 minutes. The mold is now ready and can be filled with plaster, concrete, wax or many other casting compounds. The mold can be used once, and has a life span of a number of hours.

Accelerator: The processing time will be much shorter if you use (luke-) warm or hot water!
Retarder: The processing time can be increased by using cold water without minerals and salt (demineralised water).

If you prefer to brush or spread the alginate -as is normally done on a belly or face-  we advise to use thicker alginate by using a mix ratio of water:alginate=3:1. So e.g. 300 gram water with 100 gram alginate Blue.

Shelf life
Provided that the 3-D Gel is kept in a sealed container in a cool and dry area, the shelf life is 1-2 years. After opening and sufficiently sealing the shelf life will be about 6 months.

safety
To our knowledge, the 3-D gel completely harmless to humans and the environment.
