Baby casting captures the memory of your little ones hands or feet in fine plaster, preserving in stunning detail their tiny little toes and fingers for many years to come.
When you visit my studio I’ll take moulds of your baby’s hands and/or feet – this process only take a few minutes per mould. From the mould I make a casting that, after drying, can be finished in a wide range of colours. The finished casts can be left free standing, mounted in a range of ways or framed. The full process from taking the mould, through drying to final finishing takes approximately eight weeks.
Gift Boxed Baby Casts
Free-standing casts can be finished in natural (white), rose gold, pewter, copper or bronze effect (see colour options) and presented in a gift box.
Price: 2 Limbs (hands or feet) £70
Plinth Mounted Casts
After your cast is completed in your chosen finish it’s mounted on an oak plinth with an engraved name plaque. Plinths are solid oak (not veneer) and hand made to order to fit your casts. If you’d like an alternative wood to oak please ask, I’m always happy to tailor a package to your needs. More about baby casts on plinths.
Price: 2 Limbs (hands or feet) £80

If you’d like to give your babies casting a little extra protection, but don’t want a frame, these open fronted glass baubles make a great alternative. They have a slightly flattened base, so they can be displayed free standing or hung. More information on casts in baubles.
