Create stunning 3D cast replicas of your baby's hands and feet with any of our do-it-yourself Baby Casting Kits! We have a huge range available, from affordable basic materials kits to stunning deluxe box display frame kits.
3D casting of your baby's hands and feet creates simply stunning results - the process can be a little bit messy, but it's actually quite easy to do and the effort is more than worth it for the amazing end product, we promise! You can read more about the casting process, but in brief, the baby safe alginate is mixed with water, then baby's hand or foot is dipped into the mixture to create the impression mould. Once the mix sets quickly to a texture similar to a thick blancmange, remove baby's hand/foot from the mould. The alginate impression mould retains its shape and the detail is not lost at all by doing this. Now you have your baby hand or foot impression mould and the next stage is to mix some plaster with water, and then pour it into this mould. After a few hours, you can break the alginate away from the mould (which is a really fun process!) and there you have your perfect replica plaster cast of your baby's hand or foot. The process sounds a little complicated but it's actually really easy and with the help of an assistant (or two) you can create some amazing casts with our Anika-Baby by BabyRice kits. You can see some photos of what our customers have made with our home casting kits, and we're sure you'll agree that they all look really professional and truly amazing in one of our handmade shadow box display frames too!
We have a huge selection of 3D baby casting kits to choose from, we probably have the largest selection in the UK (maybe even the world!) so you can be sure to find something to match your tastes and your home decor. Our materials are of the highest quality and and you don't have to worry about the alginate being safe on baby's skin as the alginate's main ingredient is natural seaweed. Our alginate complies with British safety standards BS 4269 Pt.2:1991 & ISO 1563:1990. Also, every box display frame on our site is handmade by us, right here in the UK. You can buy an affordable basic baby casting kit which gives you the basic materials to make up to 6 different casts of a newborn baby (or 2-3 casts of a toddler) or go all out and buy one of our complete kits that come with a gorgeous shadow box display frame and lots of casting powder materials. Whichever you choose, you can always add extra materials at the time of placing your order, or come back for more at a later date as we sell our alginate impression moulding powder, stone casting plaster, metallic paints, 3D shadow box display frames and plinths separately - please see our 'refills' page for more details.
