Planning & Preparation
The mold making process involves preparing the molding paste and placing the baby’s hand or foot into it and keep still for the paste to clot completely. Molding powders are also known as alginate; used by various industries such as for food emulsifier, and dental impression.
Preparing the molding paste is quite easy, combine the required portion of the molding powder and water. Mix the 2 together in a large Salad bowl quickly. This complete casting kit comes with all the steps and calculation to what to work it out precisely.
TIP 1: When making the mold for your baby/infant up to 6 months old, it is best done while they are asleep on your arm, so there is less movement for a longer period of time.
TIP 2: For the toddler, if you have one that tends to fiddle in this process, we find that bribing them with their favorite treats work best; tell them it is theirs if they can play still. You could also ask them to hold their small favorite treats like a couple of jelly beans.
TIP 3: Instead of using a plastic bag, use a clear plastic cup for baby hand, and takeaway container for the foot. First timers will find it much easier because of the rigid shape and help you focus on keeping your baby’s hand/foot centered and not touching the mold wall.
THE MOLDING PROCESS
TIP 1: The timing is very important here in the whole process, the paste should be smooth and even, stir quickly with the ladle and work your way to the base of the mixing bowl.
TIP 2: If you do spill some paste onto the carpet or your clothing, simply wait for it to dry and rub it off.
TIP 3: Having another person to assist in the process is fun and easier.
THE CASTING PROCESS
TIP 1: Pour slowly with a small amount of casting paste at a time into the mold cavity, tilt the mold side to side to allow the air bubble to escape from some tight areas.
TIP 2: Patch small bubble holes with mixing some casting paste.
THE FINISHING TOUCH
Let your casting sit in a well-ventilated place to dry.
Paint the casting with 2 thin coats of paint will help protect the surface and looks great too.

Such a wonderful keepsake!!! I have never been this excited to leave a review! I have a 7 year old, 3 year old, and a 1 year old. I know this is meant for babies under the age of 9 months, but I was a little slow to come across this product. And besides, I'm glad I now have one whole piece with all 3 of my children. It was a little tricky cause I had to use more product since my 2 girls have larger feet, and my son is at that age where he won't stay still. I made them without any help holding down my son. Getting the hand done was impossible. I had to throw it away because he fought me hard lol! You have to move quickly, cause the mould dries fast once it's mixed. I also used my own containers since the ones provided aren't meant for kids my age. Also, since my kids touched the sides while doing the mould, I had A LOT of touching up to do, to make it look natural. All in all, I'm in love with the outcome! Be sure it is completely dry before painting. I finished them off with an acrylic gloss spray. I then bought clay, and pushed them into it to make a stand. I didn't want them to be permanently stuck into it, so I let the clay dry for a couple of weeks. It shrunk a little, so I had to sand it to get them to fit back in. Then I bought acrylic paint for the base, and a bronze marker, used adhesive putty to get the feet to hold in the clay stand, sprayed the whole thing with acrylic gloss spray again.....and voila! You'll figure it out with trial and error, just like I did. I don't have an artistic bone in my body, but I couldn't be happier with how it all turned out. And yes, I have a little over 2 packets left over. $65 is a bargain for what you can create from this! I thought it was going to be complicated, but I think it's more just time consuming (if you're as picky as I am). Go for it! Years from now you'll be glad you did!

This is the 3rd time I’ve purchased this kit. I work with children and like to give hands and feet as gifts. Lol I just bought it again to cast my newborns bottom, feet and hands.

Awesome Kit! Exactly what I was looking for... Makes beautiful, detailed casts of hands, feet, etc! Did a hand and a foot on a wiggly 3 month old and they are both beautiful. Very special keepsake! Highly recommend. Worth every penny!

I brought this for a family of five hands was plenty and it looks fab even though we were mossing finger tips as i rushed it and the plaster didnt get to the tips but with the broken off bits of alginate i managed to put more plaster in them and attach to the finished piece looks fab. We painted it silver
