    Hey Sebastian :-)

    I think it was ~2 litres of alginate (~700grams + 1,5 litres water) which i poured into a "whey protein plastic tank" (<--- Hope you know what i mean xD ) with 15 cm in diameter and 25 cm in hight.

    Make sure, you are using very cold water to stretch the kicking time of the alginate. You might spend a bit of time to mix water and alginate in that tricky "Whey protein plastic tank" xD

    If you arent on a budget, you could mix 10 kilograms alginate in a 20 litres bucket and fill it into an acrylic pipe  :D

    Rofl,... 5 seconds..:D :D

    Similar happend to me, while striring the alginate in room- temperatured water with my hand,..
    While stiring, it started kicking.
    I became nervous and let my hand in the bucket to not waste the alginate.

    After ten seconds, when the alginate was fully cured, i realizied, that my hand was in a very crappy- confused position and so i destroyed the negative when trying to pull my hand out.

    The alginate was wasted- of course xD

    Since then, i only use very cold water and a fork or something else for stiring.
    Nothing what generates heat, like my own hand  :# :D

    Next time i will try the slow curing alginate, when my stored alginate is empty  :s :D :D

    Have fun with your projects dude  ;)
