Association of Lifecasters International (ALI)
If you are interested in having a lifecast done, you might go to the
ALI members list page and find the nearest lifecaster.
I as a board member have not judged their proficiency or knowledge of safe procedures. These people have pretty much joined by stating they have an interest in joining.
You are on your own as far as judging their
work for yourself and deciding if they are experienced enough to do what
you have in mind. Please be careful! Someone who has cast some clasped
hands and a few faces may be eager to move up to full torso work. Do you
want to be their guinea pig?
Ed McCormick, founder and head of ALI, does give referrals, presumably using his discretion.
That said, the ALI is a marvellous resource for seeing a wide variety
of lifecast art, reading its history, and seeing the work of hundreds of
other lifecast artists.
There are two forums where anyone can ask questions and have more-experienced people answer them, Lifecasting Forum, and here is another, a Yahoo egroup. Then there is an ALI members Yahoo group, for members only.
