When someone you love passes away, the memory of them becomes something you will want to treasure forever. Our 3D cast capture a tangible memorial which can be held, touched and kept for years to come.
Life casting can bring an enormous amount of comfort to grieving families, which is why we offer memorial and end of life casts alongside our other life casting products.
Working with families, hospices, hospitals and funeral directors, we will travel to where your loved one is to perform the casting. The process of taking the moulds can take between 1-2 hours is always done with dignity and respect.
In addition to this service, we can also cast on family hands to create a more personal memorial.
Please note this additional service is offered on adult casts only.
Please note that not all casting materials are equal, We use the strongest plaster and the best quality moulding material. Our prices reflect the quality of the materials. Many casting kits that are sold online, come with no instructions, wrong-size pots, and very cheap materials.
I have seen casts crumbling after a few years, the same is true for the air-drying clay kits. A lot of the clay cracks over time, which is heartbreaking for families. It also takes a lot of practice to cast the perfect hand and you usually are only given enough products for one go, we have even seen kits that do not supply enough materials for the item you have ordered.
Why is the price more expensive than the normal hand cast ?
The hand cast includes a granite base, presentation box, travel time & expenses, which is not included in a standard casting taken at the studio. We also do 2 hand cast instead of one, so double the time and materials. It also takes longer to set up and clean up afterwards.
