    Luna Bean Infant Plaster Statue Casting Keepsake Kit - Cast Baby Hand & Foot (0-9M) (Bronze) []  2020-7-26 23:25

    The casts came out so beautifully, I almost cried when removing them from the form. Hold in mind, the images are the casts straight out of the mold and BEFORE any touch ups. I'm so satisfied I can have this reminder of how little my son's small hands and feet were when he was only a month old. Allow me tell you how simple these kits were.. we did both hands and both feet, one at a time and he was awake and screaming by the second cast and we still got all of them done and they came out nearly perfect. I would definitely suggest going warmer with the water, we tried going a small cooler with the first cast so we had additional time and the cold temperature with the length that we had to keep him in the molding items created him so angry that he kicked his foot up right as it was hardening and the tops of his toes came out flat looking because of it. Thankfully the cute small bottoms of his feet came out perfectly and the kits were so forgiving that I don't even care. Warmer water = more comfortable temperature for baby and less time they have to be handled so your mold will come out flawlessy. (One of us held him up straight while giving him a bottle to distract him, while the other person held his foot or hand in the molding stuff). All I know is I'm definitely going to use these kits again once he turns a year old. Beware, the powder does fly up in the air when you're dumping it. Chop the bags begin across the top, don't rip them begin like we did (powder.Everywhere.) and use a bigger mixing bowl first and then transfer it into the bowl you're going to use the cast for. We tried mixing it right into the container the kit came with and, once again, powder everywhere. We just used a huge tupperware. Amazing luck and have fun! These are worth the price point. Nothing can replace how touching it is to have these keepsakes.

    Luna Bean Infant Plaster Statue Casting Keepsake Kit - Cast Baby Hand & Foot (0-9M) (Bronze) []  2020-7-26 23:25

    I used the product to create a casting of my newborn daughter’s foot.I like how it contains two packages, so you could use one for a hand (as well as a foot) or both feet, or both hands...An necessary thing to mention is that the material used for the actual casting is like a plaster of Paris and it is that white color. The manufacturer contains paint in the kit which is used to give the product the colourful look of the final product (I chose the pearl color). It was beautiful easy and not very labor intensive... if you do have a newborn though, this is definitely a two person project (unless your baby is super chill)... bc even though it sets up quick, you can’t really tend to the baby (if they’re fussy) and complete all the steps in the needed time frame needed.

    Luna Bean Infant Plaster Statue Casting Keepsake Kit - Cast Baby Hand & Foot (0-9M) (Bronze) []  2020-7-26 23:25

    This is a must do for newborns!!!! We had to do this twice because of user vice: Create sure baby is full on asleep. Create sure everything is ready to go before getting started. Follow detailed provided instructions accept.... Use slightly warm water and have the rubber set faster!! We split one package of the casting powder between two solo cups (we trimmed down a bit) and did both hands newborn sized hands with one package of mix. Mix and set one hand in rubber then mix and redo second hand separately (not at same time). Then you can plaster both hands at the same time. Amazing luck!!

    Luna Bean Infant Plaster Statue Casting Keepsake Kit - Cast Baby Hand & Foot (0-9M) (Bronze) []  2020-7-26 23:25

    Well, we did not dare test our newborn's hand, but the kit worked amazing for one of her feet. A few things that I found out:- it took longer than I expected for the mold mix to thicken and change color. Right when I thought it would never lighten, it did.- same for the foot casting. We had to keep her foot still for longer than expected, but that did give us some time to obtain a amazing e rest of the process went smoothly. We only had to use one set, and are saving the other for a 6 month mold.I would definitely buy this as a bonus for any fresh parents!

    Luna Bean Infant Plaster Statue Casting Keepsake Kit - Cast Baby Hand & Foot (0-9M) (Bronze) []  2020-7-26 23:25

    I love thi s product but looking to buy more molding supplies i went onto the actually makers www service and am extremely maddened that i paid $25 on amazon and only $10 on th actual website, granted it was a sale but this is regularly $16 with the original company. I absolutely love this but I didn't give it five stars because the sand paper I was given was little and half of it was not able to be used because it was ruined, also the instructions create it seem method more complicated then it actually is, and I'll recommend if your baby is a squirming 2 month old like mine I would use a talked container that method the foot isn't touching the bottom, this container was very long so the mold didn't go super high and she likes to hold her toes crunched up so the bottom of the huge toe was flat.. I will buy this for future mates having babies and wish to do more castings of my baby's other foot and both hands.

    I thought the directions were simple to follow however one twin' s foot did not turn out like I wanted it to so a bit disappointed. I think maybe a part of their foot touched the bottom of the container so I would recommend using a slightly deeper dish if doing your child's foot. I see amazing potential... want I could've had an additional bag with this kit.

    It worked out well once we realized that a the baby should probably be asleep to make the mold. He freaked out soooo poor it ended up messing up the mold beyond repair and we had to buy another casting set. In the end it turned out perfect!

    Don't hesititate to obtain this. It works amazing and I couldn't be happier. I casted my daughters foot and hand at 6 weeks and my sons as well.. it's awesome to look back on how little they were. It gets every detail, every small wrinkle. I place my daughters in a shadow box with her hospital things.

    Luna Bean Infant Plaster Statue Casting Keepsake Kit - Cast Baby Hand & Foot (0-9M) (Bronze) []  2020-7-26 23:25

    I was very excited about this product. To be honest, after i saw the instructions, i place aside for long time because it looked very long and confusing. One da, I decided to create it otherwise my LO grows so quick and wont be newborn anymore. Instead of reading the instuctions, I watched Youtuve videos several times and followed it. Mine came out a lot better than I expected because my LO moved a lot while her feet is in the mold. Still has no detailed lines. I would rather do it when my LO asleep. The compony should work on their instructions create it more have bigger pictures or write just watch youtube videos.

    The instructions are hard to follow because the pack tells you one thing and the pamphlet they send says another. And the instructions do not say that you need to mix the cast insanely fast and pour it in just as fast because it dries super quick. You know what they say though “you obtain what you pay for”. And this was the cheapest one that I found sooo.... the cast ended up being chunky on the palm and 2 fingers fell off and 2 fingernails. I will definitely be buying an American created one that costs just a small more that comes with instructions that are simple to follow.

    Definitely not enough to cast a baby's hand or foot older than 4 months and the directions on the pack aren't even in correct English and measurements are really confusing.

    Alja-Safe Lifecasting Alginate 3-lb Box - Plaster Casting Kit []  2019-12-18 18:57

    Very simple to use alginate! Included a reference chart for how much to use for each part of the body which was extremely helpful for re time is fast, but I slowed mine down by using slightly cold, filtered water. Picks up every little detail ught a few boxes to take multiple castings of a pregnant belly and they turned out great!As mentioned before, the chart is extremely helpful, but it doesn’t contain any references for pregnant bellies, but stated a full torso would only take 1.5lbs. Since I bought extra, I decided to test 3lbs just to be safe since I was dealing with a larger belly. What a waste! Not only was it waaayyyy too much, it was too massive & the mold didn’t turn out right due to the excess ied again only using 1.5lbs and was a excellent amount for doing a cast with both parents hands on the belly. The mother wasn’t too huge compared to most pregnant women so when it came time to just do just the belly I only used a pound which was plenty.I’m very happy with this product and will now be my go to product for future projects. Simple to use and clean up.

    This was exactly what I required for casting the hand for my sculpture "Child's Play" and it is one of the best casting materials I have used to date. If you are looking for something that can give you wonderful details, this is for you. Just hold in mind that air bubbles and air pockets are your enemy, unless you just like that look.

    Update: I have now used this product for over a year and it still works great. I'm on to cold number 2 and I have created over a dozen casting from the one bag. Again it will depend on how buig your projects are as mine are infant's feet and hands. I love it as much as when I first bought it.I wanted to create body castings of our newborn baby son's feet as he grows the first year and this has worked well! The one bit of tip I would recommend is making sure to dip the body part and pull it out and then place it back in to obtain rid of air bubbles. Also when filling with plaster pour slowly and rotate it around to fill all the small nooks and crannies before completely filling. The instructions were very informative and helpful in guiding me in obtaining amazing results. There is enough material to do several pours. I have done 3 babies feel and 1 set of clasped hands and one little try mix to try at the beginning using my thumb and still have enough for several more baby feet! I hold it twisted tied closed and in the box in a dry cool put and haven't had any problems over the past 12 months.

    I've used a few various types/brands of alginate but I got this one because it is a lot of product for the money. However, this one takes longer to set than the others I've used. I followed the instructions to the tee but even with the proper ratio of water to alginate and using hot water, it still took about 5 mins to set - which is a long time when trying to mold a baby's hand and foot.

    Mixing is more difficult that what I was led to believe by the directions and the video, and the product set-up faster than I anticipated which led to a wasted first batch (80 degree water really requires very fast mixing!). The results improved as I became more familiar with the product and the results are quite good. For first-time users, it would be very helpful to warn of common mistakes and errors since pitfalls are common and expensive, given the cost of the product. Also, it would be useful to specify the resulting volume of mixed product since the powder, once mixed with water is much less than the dry powder volume and can readily effect in inadequate batch sizes.

    Alja-Safe Lifecasting Alginate 3-lb Box - Plaster Casting Kit []  2020-1-18 18:18

    Super amazing stuff! Very first time using this for my husband and I and we really didn't know what to expect. We followed the directions (and by following I mean both he and I reading the instructions out loud multiple times) and the instructions seem fool proof. And just to create sure we understood the whole process we even watched a couple videos on r the sample mold I was going to do my finger in a small plastic container (a little Tupperware meant for ranch dip) and we figured out (after re-reading the instructions) that the warmer the water the faster it sets up. So the very first one we had to toss because it set up faster than we could obtain a finger into the cond sample mold my husband just used his thumb. Same container and that mold came out good. (We created the water as cold as we could obtain it so we had time to mix and create sure his thumb was in there).Thumb mold came out really good(it's kind of creepy how detailed everything came out)!So then at 9:30 pm latest night we decided to do our hand mold. I thought 3 lbs would be enough to obtain out holding hands and some of our wrists so that the finished project could stand a small taller.I didn't have anything to really fit both of our hands (he's got a monstrous hand and I've got these petite but long fingers) so I just used the box (plastic bag inside). We used up all the rest of the product and finally after about 15-20 mins we were able to free our hands out of the cast.Lots of cleanup because we don't have any unique tools that we were able to borrow from the without having to sterilize and clean (we work on a farm so instead we just used our hands to mix the Alja-safe in a bucket).I ordered the alja-safe smooth cast 300q from another review I'd read and ordered the part a and part b VERY FAST SETTING in the shade of white. When it says it sets up very quick what it really means is that you've got about 5 seconds to obtain whatever air bubbles out before that items sets up.Which we didn't have time to do. I'm only giving 4 stars because of my own private reason that I want the alja-safe could have the option in size for how much of it you wish or think you'll need. And that the parts a and b came in a small bit bigger jugs then the 1 lb bottles that we got because with just mine and my husbands hands it wasn't at and this amazing items is on the pricier side of things which is why we just got it done and over with.I am beautiful happy with the end effect and it just takes some hands on to know exactly what you're doing and how to do it. I suggest having a third person helping like I want my husband and I required latest night to mix everything or me air bubbles and some fingertips were lost because we didn't have time to obtain the air bubbles out before part a and b set up but end effect is we've got a small sanding we'll do to create it stand evenly as well as obtain rid of some esome Mother's Day bonus or birthday present.Will be purchasing again in the future...and my mom said she'll be doing this with my 2 youngest siblings so I'll be helping them with that!

Since I bought extra, I decided to test 3lbs just to be safe since I was dealing with a larger belly. What a waste! Not only was it waaayyyy too much, it was too massive & the mold didn’t turn out right due to the excess ied again only using 1.5lbs and was a excellent amount for doing a cast with both parents hands on the belly. The mother wasn’t too huge compared to most pregnant women so when it came time to just do just the belly I only used a pound which was plenty.I’m very happy with this product and will now be my go to product for future projects.

    Mixing is more difficult that what I was led to believe by the directions and the video, and the product set-up faster than I anticipated which led to a wasted first batch (80 degree water really requires very fast mixing!). The results improved as I became more familiar with the product and the results are quite good. For first-time users, it would be very helpful to warn of common mistakes and errors since pitfalls are common and expensive, given the cost of the product. Also, it would be useful to specify the resulting volume of mixed product since the powder, once mixed with water is much less than the dry powder volume and can readily effect in inadequate batch sizes.

    Super amazing stuff! Very first time using this for my husband and I and we really didn't know what to expect. We followed the directions (and by following I mean both he and I reading the instructions out loud multiple times) and the instructions seem fool proof. And just to create sure we understood the whole process we even watched a couple videos on r the sample mold I was going to do my finger in a small plastic container (a little Tupperware meant for ranch dip) and we figured out (after re-reading the instructions) that the warmer the water the faster it sets up. So the very first one we had to toss because it set up faster than we could obtain a finger into the cond sample mold my husband just used his thumb. Same container and that mold came out good. (We created the water as cold as we could obtain it so we had time to mix and create sure his thumb was in there).Thumb mold came out really good(it's kind of creepy how detailed everything came out)!So then at 9:30 pm latest night we decided to do our hand mold. I thought 3 lbs would be enough to obtain out holding hands and some of our wrists so that the finished project could stand a small taller.I didn't have anything to really fit both of our hands (he's got a monstrous hand and I've got these petite but long fingers) so I just used the box (plastic bag inside). We used up all the rest of the product and finally after about 15-20 mins we were able to free our hands out of the cast.Lots of cleanup because we don't have any unique tools that we were able to borrow from the without having to sterilize and clean (we work on a farm so instead we just used our hands to mix the Alja-safe in a bucket).I ordered the alja-safe smooth cast 300q from another review I'd read and ordered the part a and part b VERY FAST SETTING in the shade of white. When it says it sets up very quick what it really means is that you've got about 5 seconds to obtain whatever air bubbles out before that items sets up.Which we didn't have time to do. I'm only giving 4 stars because of my own private reason that I want the alja-safe could have the option in size for how much of it you wish or think you'll need. And that the parts a and b came in a small bit bigger jugs then the 1 lb bottles that we got because with just mine and my husbands hands it wasn't at and this amazing items is on the pricier side of things which is why we just got it done and over with.I am beautiful happy with the end effect and it just takes some hands on to know exactly what you're doing and how to do it. I suggest having a third person helping like I want my husband and I required latest night to mix everything or me air bubbles and some fingertips were lost because we didn't have time to obtain the air bubbles out before part a and b set up but end effect is we've got a small sanding we'll do to create it stand evenly as well as obtain rid of some esome Mother's Day bonus or birthday present.Will be purchasing again in the future...and my mom said she'll be doing this with my 2 youngest siblings so I'll be helping them with that!

    Very simple to use alginate! Included a reference chart for how much to use for each part of the body which was extremely helpful for re time is fast, but I slowed mine down by using slightly cold, filtered water. Picks up every little detail ught a few boxes to take multiple castings of a pregnant belly and they turned out great!As mentioned before, the chart is extremely helpful, but it doesn’t contain any references for pregnant bellies, but stated a full torso would only take 1.5lbs. Since I bought extra, I decided to test 3lbs just to be safe since I was dealing with a larger belly. What a waste! Not only was it waaayyyy too much, it was too massive & the mold didn’t turn out right due to the excess ied again only using 1.5lbs and was a excellent amount for doing a cast with both parents hands on the belly. The mother wasn’t too huge compared to most pregnant women so when it came time to just do just the belly I only used a pound which was plenty.I’m very happy with this product and will now be my go to product for future projects. Simple to use and clean up.

    I have a kid care of 7 kids. I was able to create multiple molds of their hands and of the foot of one of my babies. I definitely recommend making sure you allow the product cure the whole 24 hours and be very delicate once you remove the substance from the plaster if you are dealing with little fingers. I would also recommend having the kid hold their fingers touching and together if possible. I used red solo cups to pour it in and then dip the hands in. Create sure to tap the cup/container on a surface to obtain out all the bubbles and to be sure the plaster goes into all the cracks & begin places. My parents are going to LOVE these molds I created them for Christmas. I know I cherish the one I have of my son from when he was an infant.

    This was exactly what I required for casting the hand for my sculpture "Child's Play" and it is one of the best casting materials I have used to date. If you are looking for something that can give you wonderful details, this is for you. Just hold in mind that air bubbles and air pockets are your enemy, unless you just like that look.

    I've used a few various types/brands of alginate but I got this one because it is a lot of product for the money. However, this one takes longer to set than the others I've used. I followed the instructions to the tee but even with the proper ratio of water to alginate and using hot water, it still took about 5 mins to set - which is a long time when trying to mold a baby's hand and foot.

I definitely recommend making sure you allow the product cure the whole 24 hours and be very delicate once you remove the substance from the plaster if you are dealing with little fingers. I would also recommend having the kid hold their fingers touching and together if possible. I used red solo cups to pour it in and then dip the hands in. Create sure to tap the cup/container on a surface to obtain out all the bubbles and to be sure the plaster goes into all the cracks & begin places. My parents are going to LOVE these molds I created them for Christmas. I know I cherish the one I have of my son from when he was an infant.

    This was exactly what I required for casting the hand for my sculpture "Child's Play" and it is one of the best casting materials I have used to date. If you are looking for something that can give you wonderful details, this is for you. Just hold in mind that air bubbles and air pockets are your enemy, unless you just like that look.

    this was my first time using alginate for molding. unlike silicon, alginate has only one use since it dries out very fast. it has a hard time bonding to it self. this means if not enough is used you cant just add more. you instead will have to begin over. although it is several times cheaper that silicon, I would only recommend it if you don't need to use the mold more the once. if you are planning to use to mold several times I would recommend a molding silicon

    Very simple to use alginate! Included a reference chart for how much to use for each part of the body which was extremely helpful for re time is fast, but I slowed mine down by using slightly cold, filtered water. Picks up every little detail ught a few boxes to take multiple castings of a pregnant belly and they turned out great!As mentioned before, the chart is extremely helpful, but it doesn’t contain any references for pregnant bellies, but stated a full torso would only take 1.5lbs. Since I bought extra, I decided to test 3lbs just to be safe since I was dealing with a larger belly. What a waste! Not only was it waaayyyy too much, it was too massive & the mold didn’t turn out right due to the excess ied again only using 1.5lbs and was a excellent amount for doing a cast with both parents hands on the belly. The mother wasn’t too huge compared to most pregnant women so when it came time to just do just the belly I only used a pound which was plenty.I’m very happy with this product and will now be my go to product for future projects. Simple to use and clean up.

    Mixing is more difficult that what I was led to believe by the directions and the video, and the product set-up faster than I anticipated which led to a wasted first batch (80 degree water really requires very fast mixing!). The results improved as I became more familiar with the product and the results are quite good. For first-time users, it would be very helpful to warn of common mistakes and errors since pitfalls are common and expensive, given the cost of the product. Also, it would be useful to specify the resulting volume of mixed product since the powder, once mixed with water is much less than the dry powder volume and can readily effect in inadequate batch sizes.

    I've used a few various types/brands of alginate but I got this one because it is a lot of product for the money. However, this one takes longer to set than the others I've used. I followed the instructions to the tee but even with the proper ratio of water to alginate and using hot water, it still took about 5 mins to set - which is a long time when trying to mold a baby's hand and foot.

    Update: I have now used this product for over a year and it still works great. I'm on to cold number 2 and I have created over a dozen casting from the one bag. Again it will depend on how buig your projects are as mine are infant's feet and hands. I love it as much as when I first bought it.I wanted to create body castings of our newborn baby son's feet as he grows the first year and this has worked well! The one bit of tip I would recommend is making sure to dip the body part and pull it out and then place it back in to obtain rid of air bubbles. Also when filling with plaster pour slowly and rotate it around to fill all the small nooks and crannies before completely filling. The instructions were very informative and helpful in guiding me in obtaining amazing results. There is enough material to do several pours. I have done 3 babies feel and 1 set of clasped hands and one little try mix to try at the beginning using my thumb and still have enough for several more baby feet! I hold it twisted tied closed and in the box in a dry cool put and haven't had any problems over the past 12 months.

    Super amazing stuff! Very first time using this for my husband and I and we really didn't know what to expect. We followed the directions (and by following I mean both he and I reading the instructions out loud multiple times) and the instructions seem fool proof. And just to create sure we understood the whole process we even watched a couple videos on r the sample mold I was going to do my finger in a small plastic container (a little Tupperware meant for ranch dip) and we figured out (after re-reading the instructions) that the warmer the water the faster it sets up. So the very first one we had to toss because it set up faster than we could obtain a finger into the cond sample mold my husband just used his thumb. Same container and that mold came out good. (We created the water as cold as we could obtain it so we had time to mix and create sure his thumb was in there).Thumb mold came out really good(it's kind of creepy how detailed everything came out)!So then at 9:30 pm latest night we decided to do our hand mold. I thought 3 lbs would be enough to obtain out holding hands and some of our wrists so that the finished project could stand a small taller.I didn't have anything to really fit both of our hands (he's got a monstrous hand and I've got these petite but long fingers) so I just used the box (plastic bag inside). We used up all the rest of the product and finally after about 15-20 mins we were able to free our hands out of the cast.Lots of cleanup because we don't have any unique tools that we were able to borrow from the without having to sterilize and clean (we work on a farm so instead we just used our hands to mix the Alja-safe in a bucket).I ordered the alja-safe smooth cast 300q from another review I'd read and ordered the part a and part b VERY FAST SETTING in the shade of white. When it says it sets up very quick what it really means is that you've got about 5 seconds to obtain whatever air bubbles out before that items sets up.Which we didn't have time to do. I'm only giving 4 stars because of my own private reason that I want the alja-safe could have the option in size for how much of it you wish or think you'll need. And that the parts a and b came in a small bit bigger jugs then the 1 lb bottles that we got because with just mine and my husbands hands it wasn't at and this amazing items is on the pricier side of things which is why we just got it done and over with.I am beautiful happy with the end effect and it just takes some hands on to know exactly what you're doing and how to do it. I suggest having a third person helping like I want my husband and I required latest night to mix everything or me air bubbles and some fingertips were lost because we didn't have time to obtain the air bubbles out before part a and b set up but end effect is we've got a small sanding we'll do to create it stand evenly as well as obtain rid of some esome Mother's Day bonus or birthday present.Will be purchasing again in the future...and my mom said she'll be doing this with my 2 youngest siblings so I'll be helping them with that!

    Mixing is more difficult that what I was led to believe by the directions and the video, and the product set-up faster than I anticipated which led to a wasted first batch (80 degree water really requires very fast mixing!). The results improved as I became more familiar with the product and the results are quite good. For first-time users, it would be very helpful to warn of common mistakes and errors since pitfalls are common and expensive, given the cost of the product. Also, it would be useful to specify the resulting volume of mixed product since the powder, once mixed with water is much less than the dry powder volume and can readily effect in inadequate batch sizes.

    I like the fact that it was simple to use, directions were simple too follow. There was definitely some trial and error, due to the fact it was my first time using it. But was fun to use and beautiful easy. After all was said and done my wife loved her mother's day gift. Thank you, Shale LePage

    I have a kid care of 7 kids. I was able to create multiple molds of their hands and of the foot of one of my babies. I definitely recommend making sure you allow the product cure the whole 24 hours and be very delicate once you remove the substance from the plaster if you are dealing with little fingers. I would also recommend having the kid hold their fingers touching and together if possible. I used red solo cups to pour it in and then dip the hands in. Create sure to tap the cup/container on a surface to obtain out all the bubbles and to be sure the plaster goes into all the cracks & begin places.
