Record the model with exceptional accuracy and can be cast in various mediums. They allow you to be astounded your child was ever so small. They give the comfort of being able to touch the contours of a loved one’s hand years after they have passed or just to remember your body as it is today.
A consultation to discuss what the client would like, the available options and a look at the gallery of images for lifecasting ideas.
The lifecasting component is actually quite short and often only takes from 30—40 minutes. It depends on what type of cast and the prep required. It can get messy so old clothing is recommended. The product used is natural, safe and is the same type that dentists use for dental impressions. Once the product turns into a rubber like consistency (a few minutes) the mold is built up so it can be removed. For a single hand or couples vertical hands, it is simply sliding the hands from the bucket.
Once the mold is removed, the cast is poured, hand finished, dried for several weeks and then the final finish is applied. When a larger cast or life cast sculpture is commissioned, if local we can also do the installation.
