If purchasing stone to go with this, the following is an estimate: you will need about equal amounts (by weight) for infant castings and double the amounts for adult hands. Other types of castings usually fall somewhere in between. Basic mixing directions included. Note: If you will be mixing more than 1lb at one time, it is best to use a small mechanical (preferably electric) hand mixer of some sort.
