Covid 19 - we are still casting....
CASTING KITS -BUT WITH A DIFFERENCE: many online companies provide kits whereby all the equipment is provided with a printed sheet of instructions, however these in our opinion can be misleading because they can often result in unsatisfactory products. The most difficult and time consuming part of casting is after the mould has been taken, which is obviously where First Treasures skill / experience comes in.
First Treasures ‘mould – only kits’, contain the equipment needed to make the mould, and include a zoom call whereby we remotely talk you through exactly how to take the mould live. Also included are packaging materials to send back the completed moulds to our studio. Once the zoom casting is complete, customers will be emailed a courier label for next day collection.
We then cast the plaster, do all the painstaking finishing / painting and framing of the casts so that our customers receive the highest quality casting possible. Turnaround time is 4-5 weeks. Further information will be provided about the collection of completed castings in light of Covid 19 restrictions.
Studio Reopening 12th April 2021
Following the announcment by the government on 22nd February 2021, non-essential retail can reopen from 12th April 2021.
First Treasures will once again be providing contact free castings from that date in the studio. Our booking system is open so please reserve your date quickly as I have no doubt April will be a very busy month! CLICK TO BOOK. (For those of you that would still prefer not to come to the studio, the very successful zoom castings will still be offered.)
Since opening in 2013, First Treasures has created over 2500 beautifully handcrafted framed and freestanding 3d hand and foot casts, handclasp sculptures and outprint tiles of all the family.
Once out of the mould, any imperfections are removed painstakingly by hand to ensure that each cast captures every last detail of the hands and feet; jewellery, finger nails, joints and palm lines are all clearly visible in each finished product.
First Treasures casting techniques are safe and gentle for children right from birth. All of our 3d casts and 2d outprint tiles are available in a variety of finishes, with a choice of 7 frame types and an infinite selection of mount colours and combinations, making each piece truly individual.
Our fingerprint jewellery range is made from pure silver, and it includes gorgeous necklaces, charms, key rings and cufflinks in various designs.
All major credit cards accepted. Gift Vouchers for castings are available and make perfect gifts for Birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Christenings.
