3d Casts

Handclasp Sculpture
3d framed hand and foot with photo

3d hand and foot casts are taken using a gentle technique involving a non-toxic/skin safe moulding material. The casting process only takes around a minute and captures every detail of your child’s hand or foot. After you leave my studio meticulous care and attention is given to turn these moulds into plaster ‘sculptures’ of your child’s hand or foot. They are hand painted in your choice of colour, replicating real metal castings at a fraction of the cost. Your finished casts can be displayed as freestanding sculptures or alternatively safely preserved behind glass in a quality bespoke box frame, available in a choice of 7 finishes with an optional engraved or painted plaque.

As an alternative to single casts of one child I also offer freestanding handclasps; perfect for capturing a that special mother / child relationship, siblings or husband / wife as shown in the photos.

These beautiful tiles are created by gently taking a print of your child’s hand or foot in non toxic soft terracotta clay. Once you have left my studio I then take a cast directly from this impression creating a 3d outprint tile.

The process captures every intricate detail of your baby or child’s palm or the sole of their foot and is suitable for newborns right up to adults. My hand and foot print tiles are finished in your choice of colour and frame style or can be left unframed. Your own photos can also be displayed within the frame along with your tiles. I also offer 2d outprints for pets.

My range is made from 99.9% pure silver, and it includes gorgeous necklaces, charms, key rings and cufflinks in various designs. Each piece of jewellery goes through 12 different stages of production before it is finished and ready to send out to you.

The thing about fingerprint jewellery is that it is something you can have with you all the time; when you are at work, out shopping, doing the school run or on a rare evening out! 

Frequently Asked Questions

How old does my child/baby have to be to have a 3d cast or outprint taken?

There is no minimum age, I have cast babies as young as a few days old, right up to toddlers and older children. There is no age limit either, grandparents are very keen to have their hands casts with their precious grandchild.

Is it safe to have a 3D cast made?

Yes, your baby/child will have their hands or feet wrapped in a tepid mousse mixture which then becomes firm (but flexible) after a minute or two to allow me to slide out the hand/foot – which will come out clean.

Is it safe to have an outprint made?

Yes, the baby/child’s hand or foot is pressed into a soft terracotta clay. It is pain free and takes literally seconds to do.

How long does an appointment take?

3D casts take approximately 1 minute for each hand/foot. For outprints it literally takes seconds for each one. I usually allocate half an hour for appointments, to allow time for choosing colours / frame types.

Does my baby have to be asleep and can I feed while the cast is being taken?

Your baby doesn’t have to stay asleep, the mixture and technique we use allows them to be able to wriggle a little during the process. I have a box of distraction toys at hand should it be necessary! Some parents feed their baby’s while it’s being done which sometimes helps.

Do you keep the casts / can I have extra ones done at a later date using the same mould?

No, I do not keep the moulds therefore so if extra casts are required at a later date you will need to make another appointment.
