FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1At what age can a casting be done?
A casting can be done from 1 day old up to any age! Remember that babies change in size in such a short time, so the earlier you do the casting in the cuter the sculpture will look!
2Does it hurt?
The process we use is completely painless! Our molding material is non-toxic, non-allergenic, and biodegradable. In fact, it is considered a food product. It is the same material used by dentists worldwide for making impressions of teeth. Some babies will cry while the mould is being taken but this is because it is a new sensation for them. For newborns, it is easy to take the mould while they are feeding or even asleep and most of the time they don’t even notice
3What if my baby won’t stop moving her/his hand or feet?
When we are making the mould the baby is able to move and wriggle for a short time until the product starts to set. The product sets into a rubbery mould and the baby is no longer able to wriggle. The mould that has been taken is of the position your baby’s limb was in when the product sets, so each individual casting is completely unique!
4Can I choose whether my baby’s hand will be open or closed?
In the first month or so some babies will leave their hand relaxed and open but between the age of 2-8 months they will usually clench their fists as it is a natural reflex. Once they are old enough to understand you they are usually quite happy to make a Hi-5 hand for you.
5Can the same mould be reused?
No. Each mould is broken to remove the casting so it can only be used once.
6How long does the appointment take?
Taking the moulds only takes a matter of minutes, it is choosing the display options that takes a little more time. You need to choose a frame, a mat colour, casting colour, inscription and the setting inside the frame.. so we say , were taking it up to 1 hour appointment.
7What are the preparations must i prepare in advance?
Daily clothing is recommended during casting. The process can be messy if a baby twists or kicks. We provide towels, plastic, and a drop cloth to catch any spills. Its completely washable in case of dripping in your clothings.
8How do I care for my framed casting?
As a unique work of art in a glass frame,it will break if dropped. Be sure to hang your frame in secure/strong wall. And dust carefully the frame with a cloth.
9I dropped my cast and it is broken. Can it be repaired?
Most likely, yes—depending on severity. We would have to examine the piece and then discuss repair options and cost. We will always try to help.
