Baby clay prints, also known as hand and foot impression, are the ideal way to record that special moment in time and a perfect keepsake to treasure forever.
At Cast a Memory we have been creating highly detailed and accurate clay impressions for babies hands and feet for over 12 years
Our Clay impressions are not just limited to newborn babies. We can also do family hand clay impressions for all ages including teenagers and adult hands. All our frame are custom made, so we can frame multiple prints together.
There are lots of different options available, please ask for details.
Baby hand and feet impressions make a wonderful new baby gift. Ideal for baptism/christening, baby showers or a gift for a special friend.
We offer gift vouchers so the recipient can arrange a suitable time for them.
I have had my 3 children’s hand cast done, and a key ring with their prints. Sharon was fantastic with my children and the end product was brilliant . I love them.
We are thrilled with our memory display of our darling ABI, who passed away 9yrs ago. The children’s hospice EACH kindly took a plaster cast of her hand in the last week she was with us. It was white and looked a little ghostly, and after a few years the moisture in the material used went a little mouldy in places, so I really wanted to do something with it. I found a ‘Cast a memory’ leaflet in our local village hall and gave Sharon a call. She was so friendly and respectful of our situation and said she thought she could help. I went and visited her and she was so helpful and we discussed various options. Sharon was able to take a re-mould from the original, and coat it to preserve it, and paint it.I also had a beautiful memory display made, with a picture of ABI, her name and a new painted cast of her hand. It looks amazing. We are thrilled with it. Thank you so much Sharon for your kindness, patience and skill at creating this wonderful memory for us.

We use a soft clay which is specifically made for taking baby imprints, making it suitable for tiniest hands and feet. We gently push the child’s hand/foot into the soft clay to create the impression. You will then need to decide what type of frame you would like and what colour you would like the mount to be (this is the bit that normally takes the time). We then use the clay impression to make a beautiful 2D tile.
Clay impressions can be taken from just 1 day old – 100 years old.
Babies grown so quickly in the first year of their life. That is why the first 9 months is the perfect time to capture imprints of their hands and feet, so you can keep them as a memento of how tiny they used to be.
The clay impression tile is mounted in a hand made glazed frame of your choice including Oak, Black, White, Silver and dark stained wood and is fully lined with a colour mountboard of your choice.
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.
