Before an operation, for example a breast cast can be done before a mastectomy.

You are welcome to bring a friend or to come on your own.
Body casting can be an amazing and positive experience.
The body casting process involves making an alginate mould of the body part to be cast
This is a quick, totally painless and an enjoyable process.
The Alginate I use a totally safe and natural moulding material. Alginate powder is extracted from natural seaweed.
It is mixed with water to the right consistency and is then applied to the body and a plaster bandage shell is made to support the alginate.
When this process is complete the mould is removed carefully. Finally the mould is used to make the cast.
The cast is made out of very high quality casting plaster and reinforced with fibreglass this gives the cast strength but keeps it thin and very lightweight so it can easily be hung on the wall.
The cast then needs to dry out fully before it can be painted, this usually takes at least 12 weeks. The cast then can be finished in a variety of colours and paints.
