It was cast out of the original mold from the movie and television industries. As you can see from the photos, the surface detail is amazing, it is truly a great casting off of the actress's face. This casting is a 3/4 Life Cast, meaning the casting goes all the way behind the ears, almost a full head life cast.Since the mold was taken directly off the actress's face the casting is life size. I have a Life Cast collection of over 250 celebrities, Movie & Television Stars, and historical greats such as Abe Lincoln, George Washington ETC. If you are interested in a list please let me know. The life casts I sell are not mass produced or pre-casted and put in stock.
Each cast must pass my high standards, no air pockets or surface defects. It is this attention to detail and quality control that sets Classicasts apart from the competition.I start with my original plaster life cast and make a high quality RTV platinum silicone rubber mold. Silicone rubber molds do not shrink, and hold an incredible amount of detail! My next step is pouring the cast.
Again I use a high grade gypsum cement called White Hydrocal. I do not use cheap casting or pottery plaster. Hydrocal costs a little more but the results are well worth it. After my first coat of bubble free Hydrocal has set, I apply a second coat of Hydrocal that is mixed with a fiber, much like packing straw. This coat reinforces the cast to make it strong and durable, less likely to chip or break, and it allows the cast to be light weight.During this final coat a metal wire loop is embedded into the upper back area so the cast is ready to hang on the wall. I take great care in packing all my life casts. The life casts are encased in bubble wrap then suspended in the middle of the box by packing peanuts. The box itself is of a thicker cardboard stock, 200 pounds per square inch in a bursting test. All of my life casts are guaranteed.
Finally I would like to address the subject of Certificates of Authenticity. Because a COA for a life cast isnt worth the paper its printed on. I can print up my own COA, and make up some lame limited edition number, but thats not really valid is it?
None of the life casts you see for sale are authorized by a movie studio, or special effects studio. Or for that matter, none of the life casts are approved for sale by the estates of the celebrities represented.
These life casts make their way to the general public without the knowledge of the movie studios, special effects shops, or any other points of origin. So dont be fooled by someone issuing a COA or limited edition number with their life cast, as I said earlier its not worth the paper its printed on.
