The Lifecasting Process


The Casting Process

To make the casting moulds, I use a material called alginate which is used by dentists to take impressions of teeth. It is derived from seaweed and is completely safe to use on skin including your baby’s delicate skin. The alginate is prepared and poured into a pot where your baby’s hand or foot is placed for their cast. It doesn’t take long for the alginate to set to a rubbery consistency which is when I remove the foot or hand. Once I have taken your life casting mould, you are free to head off and leave me to work on the next stage of creating your beautiful hand or foot cast(s).


I love crafting casts with a perfectionist touch, treating each one like it’s my own. My clients appreciate my eye for detail, capturing every little wrinkle and crease that makes the moment truly special. With years of experience, I’ve honed my technique to make sure your cast stands out and showcases all the beautiful details.


It takes approximately 8 to 10 weeks for me to create your highly detailed life casts.
