Life Form Face Coat allows the life caster to pick up the finer details on skin for a more accurate replica. Face Coat is a thinner version of the Life Form and a very thin layer can be applied first and backed up with Life Form.

• LIFEFORM silicone offers many advantages over alginate such as the wider range of materials that can be cast directly into your mould and it can be used again and again.
• LIFEFORM also can be bonded to itself, allowing the life-caster to apply thinner skins resulting in less material and less wastage.
• LIFEFORM also offers release properties that are completely unique to this system. Unlike other life-casting silicones that need a barrier or release applied quite thick to ensure a good release, which can obscure the detail.
• LIFEFORM can be applied direct to clean skin with no loss of detail
