Suitable for all ages
Our casting material is friendly to skin, and is made nice and warm for our younger customers, so it sets really quickly. Depending on the age of the children, it can set in as little as 1 minute. The material changes colour while it sets, so children really enjoy watching the magic happen. It also feels like slime/jelly to touch which most children find fun.
We have some toys in the studio to keep your little ones happy during the short time it takes for the material to set. We also recommend bringing their favourite toy along to watch, and a little treat goes a long way too!
One of the most personal and most meaningful items we own is our rings. Whether they are wedding rings, have been passed down in the family, or your favourite costume jewellery, they will make your casting even more unique to you, and are always welcome. We may ask to take a photo of your rings for reference to help us check the detail on the finished cast.
Our Couples Castings include one ring per adult hand. Any additional or complex rings are priced at £20 per ring.
Family Clasped Hands
We are often asked if we can cast more than 3/4 hands at one time. Our clasped hand castings are done in a 'bucket' style, and can include up to 6 people at the most, depending on age. These are the most suitable style of casting for children under 6, as the material only takes around 2 minutes to set,. This is a very fun style of casting to do, its very quick, and the whole family will enjoy it.
Baby Castings are suitable from as little as 2 days old until 18 months old. After 18 months, we class this as children's castings, which are priced differently.
We are often asked how we keep the babies still while the material sets. The truth is, we don't need them to stay still. It is helpful if they are happy and content while having the casts made and don't try to pull themselves out too early, so we do all that we can to help this happen. Whether that means the baby is being breast/bottle fed during the casting process, or we are pulling silly faces and playing with toys to distract them, the baby is the boss and we follow their lead. We can walk around the room while we do the casts, or they can be sound asleep on Mummy/Daddy's knee, whatever makes them happy. The material only takes around 1 minute to set per hand/foot for Baby Castings.
Face casting are suitable for children as young as 6, depending on their personality and their understanding of the process, and our oldest model to date was 87 years old. Our models can always breathe throughout the whole process, and we don't use any straws or anything else for you to breathe through. We simply leave holes at your nostrils where there is no material so you can breathe naturally through your nose the whole time. Face castings take around 10 minutes from start to finish, and we are told they are very comfortable and quite relaxing. The material releases easily from your face when ready. Facial hair, including beards/moustaches are suitable for casting as long as the hair is fairly short.
