I have perfected a new method of constructing rigid mother molds over the flexible alginate skin.

By using wax instead of plaster I have been able to build mother molds that are stronger, lighter, faster to construct, adhering perfectly on the alginate (no gaps), absolutely safe and extremely cheap by virtue of being reusable.

Full details on: http://www.bodyscape.net.nz/articles0000013.htm

I am hoping that fellow life casters will experiment with the technique and improve on it.

All the best,

Olivier

Hi Lidia, and welcome to the ILCM-Forum!

I think the vast majority of our members here are ALI members. ALI started it all with gathering the family of lifecasters together. Its great to know that there are so many people throughout the world who share our same interest and are willing to help others when faced with questions.

I hope you've had a chance to look throughout this museum website, and when you have the time, please feel free to submit of photo of your work to the museum's "Virtual Gallery". And please pass the word along to any others you feel might like a little free International exposure.

Happy castin'!

Yes, Lidia, it is very simple. As easy as sending an email. Just go to the "Virtual Gallery" page and at the bottom you'll see a link to click on.

To be included in the virtual gallery page, please email the following:

1. A photo of one of your life casts
2. The city - state and country you are from
3. Your email address
4. Your website address (if you have one)
5. A one to two sentence profile of yourself with regard to life casting. The statement might include the following; do you create face casts, hand casts, body casts? Is this your hobby or profession? Do you sell life casting kits or supplies?

This is a free service to help the life casting community, especially those that don’t have a website.
