    Alginate from Research but no directions. Do I just add water? Warm or cold? Gently stir or whip? Thanks for the info.

    Add water and mix well to get rid of any dry mix or lumps. The cooler the water the slower it sets.

    Cecil what are you using to resize your pics so they fit.

    JASC PaintShop Pro. I don't mess with the pixels. I go to the Image, Resize, and then percentage of original until the size looks about right. If it's too big I go a little smaller until it works out.
