Applications

Moulding, auxiliary: Moulding alginate

Dosage: 1 part powder to 2 parts water.The resulting mould is short-lived and can be used to produce a maximum of 3 moulds. A natural product, non-toxic in contact with skin.Allows very precise moulding.For prints in plaster, reconstituted stone or wax.

Moulding, auxiliary: Siligum

It is easy to mould and reproduce all sorts of objects. The choice of the mouldingproduct depends on the shape and consistency of the subject, casting material

and the numberof copies desired.Measure out 1 part blue component (resin)to one part white component(hardener). Mix quickly (30 seconds) by rolling the mixture as a rod. The mixture should have a light blueuniform colour. Make a ball and crush the object laid flat by covering it with a layer of 3 to 4 mm thick. For larger objectsmake a shell with the plaster strips.

Working time: 3-4 min; Setting time: about 5 minutesfrom making the mixture. To havemore time for application, cool the mixturea few minutes in the refrigerator. Pour the reproductive material: plaster, crystalresin, reconstituted stone; unmould after drying. Let dry and decorate.

Molten lead(melting temperature 328°C) can be poured into a Silligum mould. The Silligum mix (A+B) canwithstand a maximum temperature of 200°C.

The mouldsmade with Silligum (A+B) are not suitable for contact with food.

Moulding, auxiliary: Demoulding Vaseline

Brushed onto the mould beforecasting, it simplifies the demoulding of crystal resin andprotects the moulds. It is also usedto protect the eyelashes and eyebrows, beforemoulding the face with alginate or with plastered strips

Moulding, auxiliary: Latex

Apply the latex with a brush on the object to be moulded. At first, you will have taken care to protect your brushes by coating them with dishwashing liquid. Allow the first layer to dry 10 minutes. Apply a second coat. On this layer still wet, place the gauze to strengthen the mould and immediately apply a third layer on top. Allow to dry 10 minutes and apply a fourth layer. Allow to dry 6 hours. Using Gédéo’s plaster strips, make a supporting shell. Demould the shell once dry. To prevent the latex from sticking to itself, sprinkle the outside of mould with Gédéo’s Demoulding Talc and unmould. Pour the reproductive material: plaster, crystal resin, reconstituted Gédéo. Unmould. Let dry and decorate.

The maximum temperature that a latex mould can withstand is 50°C. To thin the latex, you can add up to 5% of water, stirring slowly.
