What is life casting?
Life casting is the process of creating a three-dimensional sculpture, using molding and casting techniques. Creating the mold is very quick, easy and safe.
Is it safe?
Absolutely! We wouldn't let you or your child touch anything that we wouldn't put in our mouths. The product that we use is made from seaweed, hypo-allergenic, and 100% non-toxic. We only use materials that do not contain free silicates (a known carcinogen in cheap Alginate).
This seaweed based product is gentle and hypoallergenic. Approved for body casting for children and adults. Baby or children’s hands/feet are cast using a 3 min. color changing cream. Setting time is about sixty seconds.
At what age should I cast my baby's hands and feet?
It is best to capture them as tiny as possible, around 3 weeks to 6 months. However, there are no drawbacks to cast older children.
Does my baby need to be awake during the casting?
Babies can be awake or asleep, for the most part there is no issue as the product we use for babies cures up pretty quickly.

The ideal time to capture your pregnancy is between 32-38 weeks. It is important that your belly a nice size and round for the casting, this ensure a really nice final product.
