How many pulls can i expect to get from my mask mold before it starts to fail? i used something called ALPHA PLASTER.

product specs are below, id like a rough idea of how many i will get as if its only going to be 15-20 ( i have no idea im just pulling numbers out of the air here ) i want to make sure i keep half for myself, painting practise/kids etc.


"Top class casting plaster which is very fine, hard and strong. Used for the casting of finished pieces where a hard durable surface is important. Setting time 12 - 25 minutes. Plaster to water ratio 2.8kg / litre. Compressive strength (dry) 7054 psi.!

thanks

Is it the Modell plaster from Tiranti's that you've used? If so you'll get about 8-12 from it. One trick I've learned is to give the interior of the mold a light dusting of talc then using canned air to blow the excess out. This acts like a release agent and stops the latex delaminating the plaster for a while.
