"I really enjoyed learning how to make face castings. The DVD has some wondeful animation sequences which showed me how to apply materials. After viewing the DVD I'm confident I can create face casting for profit. Kudos to Ed McCormick the instructor!"
$60 Could Have Been Better Spent

I bought both "How to Create an Artistic Face Casting" and "Casting the Female Torso" DVD's, and I have buyer's regret.
I won't call them a rip-off, but they are overpriced. Each DVD could be condensed to about 4 minutes of information. The rest is fluff.
The DVD's do not go beyond basics. How to do a full body cast, for instance, is not hinted at. Or how to cast a round body part, such as an arm.
If both DVD's were combined into one and sold for $15, they would be a good deal.
As it is, unless you're trying to spend money, you might do better with another video or a library book.
I do wonder if the $30-dollar price tag isn't a result of small-press distribution costs and the makers of these videos aren't earnest in their desire to share what they know, but currently the videos are not informational enough to justify the cost.
I've now spent $60 on both these videos to learn body casting and I'm really not much further along than I was before the videos."
