On arrival you will be given all the different options, which include engraving plates, wood base/frame, type of wood, mountboard colour.
The actual life casting process is very quick, you will be asked to place your hand/foot in a container which will be filled with mixture (a bit like cold custard) and held in there for about 1-2 minutes. After this time the mixture will set hard.
After the setting time, your hand/foot will be slowly released from the mixture, leaving a mould for us to cast.
When booking for a child/baby, please bear in mind their meal times and sleep times, as the experience will be more enjoyable if your child is happy. Sometimes it can help to give your baby a feed whilst casting takes place, as this offers a good distraction. Generally speaking foot castings tend to be easier than hand castings.
