About the molding compound: It is a non-toxic & non-allergenic molding powder which was created especially for use on skin. It has been tested by the ACTS Testing Labs and conforms to the ASTM D4236 for safety. It is also considered a "food" product and will not harm an infant if small amounts are ingested. It sets in about 3 minutes at which time it turns rubbery and flexible.
About the Casting Stone: We use a Gypsum Cement that dries to a pristine white, provides fine detail, accepts all types of paints very well and is chip & chalk resistant. Overall, it is approximately 3X stronger than the traditional art plaster or "plaster of paris."
