Preserve precious baby hands & baby feet while they're tiny!
Now you can mold a three dimensional plaster statue of a baby hand and footprint complete with little dimples, creases, folds and nails. As you can imagine, this makes a much more impressive baby keepsake and unique baby gift than other casting kits which show only a basic impression of the shape and size of baby foot prints or hand prints.
Quick set molding powder is safe even for a newborn, and is easy to use and non-toxic. Your infant's hand or foot is needed for only 2-3 minutes and a bit of wiggling is no problem when creating the mold!This baby hand casting and footprint kit is for babies to about 10-12 months (max. foot length under five inches).
This baby keepsake kit makes either:
- 2 baby hands or
- 1 infant hand & 1 infant foot
If you want to cast more than one 3D baby hand and one foot, or mold a different combination (two feet, for example), you will need a refill kit for each additional hand or foot casting. So, to cast all four baby hands & feet you would need two refills.
Each Baby Hand & Footprint Kit comes with a clear glaze finish to make hand and foot castings look like glossy ceramic or porcelain. Optional finishes include: metallic pearl, gold, champagne, or bronze (see footprint comparison photo at right). A Metallic Antiquing Kit can be added if you'd like to "age" the look of a bronze, gold or champagne finish.
Baby Hand & Footprint Casting Kits can be purchased as a Basic Kit (with no display base), or as a Deluxe Kit (which includes a 5x7" oval wood base with routed edges as shown in the photo). The kit type can be selected when ordering. Do you prefer an even more elegant presentation? Consider a dome* display and keep baby's hands and feet safe under glass!
Each Baby Hand and Footprint Keepsake Kit includes:
- Molding powder (enough for 2 baby hands or 1 baby hand & 1 baby foot)
- Plaster casting stone
- 2 reusable hand and foot molding containers
- Mixing spoon
- Sandpaper and detailing pin
- Paint brush
- Clear glaze for finish painting
- Easy to follow instructions
NOTE: The baby hand and foot print molding kit makes either two hands or 1 hand and 1 foot. If you want to cast more than two statues, or a different combination, you will need a refill kit.
