Alginate Experiment #1

I'd been meaning to try this for a little while; I had a bag of quick setting alginate left over from my Fine Art course, and wanted to see if it would be any good for mould making, so giving it a go on one of my old model heads, see what level of detail we get and how it'll react. It was simply a case of mixing it with the water pretty quickly, then slopping it over the model.

Unfortunately, as you can see, it was a bit too thick in some parts and thin in others, causing it to fail when removing the model. Detail-wise though it looks promising! Stay tuned.
