Does anyone have any tips on mixing small quantities of Hydrocal/Ultracal? As much as I love casting all sorts of oddball "things" for my daughters to paint/play with, it would be nice to know how I can mix up just 125mL if all I need is 125mL as opposed to mixing up four or five times what I need.
I was taught back in the day that in mixing large quantities for body casting or large volume casts to sift the plaster into the water until the "water won't take any more plaster" and a little mountain has formed just cresting the surface. At small quantities I'm finding I've always got too much water (I've been mixing in 'Red Solo Cups') and the little mountain plan isn't proving to be a consistently effective marker.
Received my first order of Delrin beads today and am excited to start moulding and casting head and body parts this weekend.
