Forming a hand or foot provides a valuable gift or a beautiful memory. You can make a copy of almost any part of your body!
Usually a single-use alginate 3D gel mold is used. Alginate is dried seaweed powder and therefore harmless. Our alginate 3D gel mixed with water is very liquid and therefore especially suitable for "pouring" or immersing something. If you still want to lubricate it, you can add less water.
You can also work with a very fast silicone, but make sure you use Vaseline to prevent hairs from being pulled out. Also with the use of vaseline there is still the chance that eyebrows and eyelashes stick, so always be careful and do a small test first.
Both the alginate and the silicone shape of a body part need a support cap. If you have cast the silicone or alginate in a container around the body part, the support cap is usually the casting container. Otherwise you have to use for example plaster cast.
You can pour different materials into the mold. In the alginate you can pour plaster and silicone, or even chocolate. Please note: water-sensitive products such as polyurethane should not be poured into an alginate mold! If you like to make polyurethane castings you better use a silicone mold or first cast a plaster in alginate and then make a silicone mold into which you can then pour the polyurethane.
