As Wikipedia defines a lifecast "is the process of creating a three-dimensional copy of a living human body" in this case just the face. I found an excellent instructible on this (Lifecasting-Hands
) so I wont go into that much detail. Sorry forgot to take picsFirst
put a bald cap on so it covers your hair.Second
apply the petroleum jelly to all facial hair like eyebrows, eyelashes etc.Third
mix alginate and apply over face and let dry (it will turn rubbery) put straws in nose so you can breath.Fourth
wet plaster bandages and apply over dry alginate and let harden.Fifth
, wiggle your face to loosen alginate, pull off alginate and plaster bandages together, the plaster bandages keeps the shape of your face. This is a negative of your face.Lastly
mix and pour plaster into the negative, let dry and then you will have a positive of your face!!
