If you just can’t choose between a hand or foot cast – why not have both?!

We can cast both one hand and one foot of your little one in the same appointment, to be framed next to each other in a beautiful creation. This casting also comes with a name plate, choice of frame and paint colour to be finished.

They grow up far too quickly, so this is the perfect way to encapsulate the younger years of your little one – with a single hand and foot casting accompanied with a photo of your choice.

Including a photo in the frame just adds that extra special touch, and they’re much better displayed hanging on the wall next to their little castings as opposed to stored a way in a photo album.

As with all of our other creations, you have a choice of frames, name plate type and card insert colour.

Freestanding Casts

Not every casting needs to be framed and in fact, they look great as freestanding decorative ornaments around the house. 

Our unique freestanding casts aren’t just for babies and toddlers, they create the opportunity for the whole family to get involved, too!

Check out some of our products below…

Family Hand Casting

What better way to encapsulate the strong family bond than with a solid hand cast? 

This unique casting can be made with three, four or five hands linked together to create the perfect treasured gift. As with all of our other castings, careful hand crafting techniques are used to ensure that even the smallest details such as wrinkles, nails and wedding rings are captured.

You choose the colour (silver, gold or bronze) and your preference in finish from metallic, rustic or matte – and we do the rest of the work!

For this type of casting, we recommend any children to be a minimum of 3 years and above, in order to be able to create a strong bond between the hands and wrists.

Holding Hands Casting

Our popular holding hand castings are open to a combination of parents, toddlers and babies. The hands can be held together in a variety of different poses, depending on the style you’re looking for.

Typically two hands are used in these creations, although you can also get the whole family involved with the parents’ hands clasped together, and baby’s hand cast separately and positioned inside or next to the other hands. 

The casts can be finished to a colour of your choice, and come as either freestanding or can be mounted on a plinth.

Belly Bump Casting

Belly Bump Casting

We aren’t restricted to hand and feet castings here. Introducing, our belly bump casting!

Pregnancy is such a special time for all mothers, and this is your chance to capture the memory of carrying your little bundle of joy for all those months. Belly bump castings are completely safe, and can be done anytime from 30 weeks – however, the bigger the bump the better so we usually recommend 36/37 weeks for the best results.

There are so many different options with our belly bump castings – they can be left plain or decorated, and include breasts, your own hands or maybe your partners hands, too.

This is one of our most special castings to date – and also makes a great gift for an expectant mother!

Decorative Baby Casts

We have two new decorative baby casting options available – both very different to the standard framed and freestanding castings available.

Bauble Cast

Really make your baby hand casting stand out with one of our adorable bauble castings. 

The same casting process applies to these creations, and once the cast is finished we then place it carefully inside a high quality bauble with a stunning glittery effect.

You have the choice of the bauble on its own – a perfect addition to the Christmas tree – or have it hanging on one of our beautiful heart-shaped stands.

Hanging Heart Slate Cast
