Alja Safe Breeze® is measured out at a ratio of 5 parts water to 1 part Alja Safe Breeze by volume.
Water is measured and added to a mixing container.
Once all the water is added, Alja Safe Breeze® is put into the mixing container.
Alja Safe Breeze® disperses and mixes easily in the water.
The alginate thickens as it is stirred in the water to a nice smooth consistency.
Once mixed, Breeze® is poured into a new, clean, casting container.
The advantage of Alja Safe Breeze® over other alginates is its smooth, lump free consistency that will ensure a perfect casting.
After mixing, the alginate is ready for life casting.
The smooth consistent texture of the Alja Safe Breeze® lends itself to easy lifecasting and capturing perfect detail.
Once initially plunged into the Alja Safe Breeze® , the model pulls his hand out to ensure there is no surface tension on the skin that could cause air bubble in the casting.
Within minutes, the Breeze® cures to a tough rubber like material.
Once cured, the model easily removes his hand, no residue from the Breeze® is evident on the model.
Breeze® cures to a very smooth material, capturing all the detail of the models hand.
Clay is melted on a hot plate in order to pour into the mold.
Once the clay is melted, it is poured into the freshly made Breeze® mold.
After the clay has cooled, the Breeze® mold is slid out of the container for demolding. (the bottle was inserted in the hot melted clay to provide a base to sculpt on.)
Demolding the clay hand from the Breeze® is an easy process, just tear it apart.
The Breeze® removes easily from the soft clay casting.
The clay reflects perfect detail captured in the Alja Safe Breeze® from the initial model. It is now ready for details to be sculpted in that would suggest it was severed from the body.
