Baldiez or super baldiez?
« on: August 30, 2010, 11:22:08 PM »
I’m going to buy some silicon and baldiez from Mouldlife, but I’m not sure about which of the baldiez I should order, the regular or the new super baldiez.

I’m going to use it as an encapsulator and will be doing both transfers and regular prosthetics.

After seeing Neill Gortons DVD about flat moulds and 3d-transfer appliances I felt that buying the super baldiez would be the right way to go. But after doing some quick researching on the web I found that there could be a problem working with AA-makeup on the super baldiez, that the alcohol would dissolve the baldiz and ruin the appliance. That scenario sounds pretty logical, but I didn’t saw any sign of that happening on the Gorton DVD, so I’m not really sure what to think.

Do any of you guys have any experiences with this?

Both work great. I ran a dozen pieces with super baldies today. If you go with regular baldies use a 50/50 mix of acetone and 99% alcohol to blend the edges off, the super works with just 99% alcohol. You need to run a nice base color when casting your silicone get a color match if you can. Paint in washes and spatters or non alcohol based colors.

So you can mix alcohol and acetone to blend the edges of regular baldiez? I actually didn't know about this; I thought you should use straight acetone to blend the edges. Alcohol seems a bit safer to put on someone's skin, so I will definitively try that procedure if I buy the regular baldiez.  :)

So the problem of skin illustrator breaking down the super baldies isn't really a problem, you just have to make sure not to be too heavy handed with the brush?

Super Baldies is far better.  It dries water clear, not cloudy, and is stretchier, and can be blended with alcohol.
