THE MOULDING PROCESS

 The moulding process is a safe and simple one. We use a non-toxic impression powder that sets very quickly - within 30-45 seconds or so! We always take two to three moulds of each hand or foot and then we have two to choose from for your finished casts.  

Delivery time

 We take the moulds away to carefully cast them and turn them into a perfect keepsake for you to love! The turnaround for plaster casts is 4-6 weeks and 8 weeks for pure bronze and silver plated. All casts can then be collected from us, or if agreed at the time of the booking we can deliver (a fee will apply if further than 5 miles from KT8).

FAQ's

How do i pay?

We take payment in two instalments. 50% at the casting session and the remainder upon delivery/collection of the finished casts. We take payment by cash, card or bank transfer.  

do you do home visits?

 We hold appointments at our address in KT8 by appointment only and try our best to flexible on dates and times for casting sessions. We have had to take a break from home visits for the foreseeable future, but we will be attending group bookings, parties and local events and soft plays.  

how are the moulds taken?

 We use a non-toxic impression powder called Alginate (the same mixture is used by dentists to make mouth impressions). We mix the powder with warm water and using a cloth we coat around the hand/foot. It sets within 30-45 seconds and turns to a soft rubber which is then flexible to remove.  

About Us

what is the best age for casting?

We can take the moulds from as young as 4 days old. The best time for newborns is when they are fed and relaxed. We take at least two moulds of each hand. We have had many wriggly babies and children and it won't effect the moulding process. 

can the moulds be re-used?

 We don't re-use the same moulds twice, but if you want any additional casts we will take extra moulds at the time of the casting session (and we take £10 off of any extra sets).  

what is the turnaround for finished casts?

We try to keep the turnaround at 4 weeks. If we think the turnaround will exceed this we will discuss with you at the time of the booking.
