    Hi everyone,

    I'm a geology student, but I'm working on a research project that involves taking molds of teeth. I've looked online at President Jet putty and Epoxy resin, and I was wondering: is there any place I can get them for relatively low prices, and in bulk? I'm not sure how much I need, so I think it's best to have extra.

    Anything dental related is overpriced. Try playdough. Dentists use VinylPolysiloxane (VPS) impression materials that are very expensive. There may be some cheaper VPS at eBay that are used to record the bite which is not as accurate for crowns and other prosthesis.
