Baby's Feet - 3D Casting

3D Casting

A solution of water & powder(seaweed extract) is mixed to produce the moulding material.

This product is widely used by dentists to create dental moulds and is perfectly safe to use on skin.

The foot or hand is immersed in the solution to create a detailed mould - this takes approximately 2 minutes to set.

The mould sets to a latex like finish,so the hand or foot is easily removed.

A plaster casting is then created to produce an exact replica of the hand or foot which highlights all those unique lines & creases.

Hand Crafted

Timeless Cherished Memento

Hand Imprint in Clay

Once the clay is dried and shaped, it is fired slowly in a kiln to produce a solid bisque tile.

The tile is glazed by hand - white outside the hand/foot and with a colour of your choice inside the hand/foot.

Your choice of wording is then painted by hand on the tile to complete a timeless cherished memento.

Finally, the tile receives a glaze firing in the kiln to produce a unique glazed ceramic imprint which will stand the test of time.

What you receive is the original impression taken, now in ceramic form.
