I brought a necklace for my niece as a present with her son's handprint on. She cried when she saw it. It made a fantastic present.

Frequently Asked Questions

On arrival you will be given all the different options, which include engraving plates, type of wood, finish.

 

The actual life casting process is very quick, you will be asked to place your hands 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 hands will be slowly released from the mixture, leaving a mould for us to cast.

  • Appointment time: 45 minutes for a hand and foot – allow more time for double casts
  • Processing time: normally 2 – 4 weeks

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.

Yes, engraving costs an extra £6.
Please let me know when booking if you would like this included in your order.
