3D Hand and Foot Casting: what is it?
3D body casting is the art of creating an exact replica of a part of your body, be it hands, feet, face, lips, torso, or even bottom! The body part is covered in a high grade alginate (like a thick gloop) and removed once it has set (this is totally safe and can be done quickly for babies and toddlers). The mould is then taken and filled with the desired material (casting stone, cold cast bronze, or aluminium). Once the cast has set, the alginate is removed to reveal a highly detailed replica. The alginate will even pick up fine detail, such as finger nails, creases and ‘swirls’ on the skin.
Here at Captured Keepsakes we pride ourselves on the quality and finish of ours casts. We have been body casting since 2009 and have a wealth of experience casting newborns, toddlers, couples, families, baby bumps, pet paws and more. Your cast can be finished to your specific requirements and presented in several ways, such as a freestanding piece, framed, or hung directly onto a wall.
We are proud members of The Association of Lifecasters International.
