Family hand casting process
Family casts are great fun! The appointment usually takes about an hour depending on the type of cast and the number of people you wish to include.
Generally actually taking the mould takes only a couple of minutes and is a fun and relaxed experience.
The cast is taken using a casting gel called alginate. Alginate is completely safe and can be used in direct contact with skin and is extracted from natural seaweed. It is the same material that has been used totally safely for making dental impressions millions of times by dentists in people's mouths for well over half a century.
The alginate is mixed with water to form a gel.
After carefully arranging your hands, I either submerge your hands in the gel to make the mould or I cover them with alginate and then make a supportive plaster shell.
These larger casts need plenty of time to hand finish and to dry to ensure the longevity of the cast therefore they will be ready for collection in 12 to 16 weeks.
If you are thinking of capturing a special family moment with a family hand casting please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss the options. I do offer payment plans for larger casts.
