    There may not be "a" best way. I have used silicon, alginate, bondo, and plaster to cast. If done correctly I seriously doubt you can get any better then bondo and resign. Silicon is good but too expensive for most applications. Plaster is such a cheap alternative and it works great if you use it properly. Of course alginate will rporducte a great head but once again you have to know hoe to mix properly and to use it correctly. I would pay attention to anything Bruch puts the pen to.

    Just my opinion of course
