Baby 3D castings capture your little ones hands and feet in true life-sized form. It’s truly amazing how much detail is caught in each casting. Their beautiful tiny fingernails can be seen along with the cute little wrinkles/lines in their skin. Babies grow so fast. A 3D casting will enable you to capture a life-sized keepsake to look back on and remember just how tiny they once were.
We create 3D castings using a special moulding compound. Once mixed with water the compound sets (very quickly, within 3 minutes) and this creates a mould of the hand or foot. The mould compound is 100 % safe for babies. We use the same moulding compound used by dentists. After the appointment, we pour a fine plaster inside the mould which sets and forms a harder casting of the hand or foot. We then sand and finish the casting with your colour of choice.
Our 3D castings are available in a variety of finishes. You can choose from either antique silver or gold (we find these offer depth and pick out details extremely well like lines and creases) or metallic silver, rose gold, bronnze gold, pearl white or classic white.
The castings are very delicate and to protect them we recommend framing them or alternatively using a plinth to keep them at their best for many years to come (this is optional). Our frames are of the highest standard and come in a selection of colours. We offer black, grey, white, oak, natural and chocolate. Front and back mounts can also be added, along with different styles of frames to suit your home.
Due to the nature of this product you will need to be available in Bracknell or surrounding areas for an appointment which will last approximately 1 hour. A nonrefundable booking fee of £20.00 is required at the time of booking. The casting is very quick (3 mins in total). During the appointment we will discuss finish and, if required, framing or plinth options. Your deposit will be deducted from the final payment which is due within 7 days from our initial meet. The lead time for completion of the casting is 4-6 weeks.
