At your appointment, two impressions are taken of your baby's hands/feet using soft clay.

If your child has any kind of skin problem you must seek advice from your GP before having a cast done. It is best to dress your baby in a short-sleeved vest so your caster has full access to hands and feet.

After your appointment, the impressions are cast to make the impressions stand outwards as outprints and left to dry out thoroughly for at least 2-3 weeks. They are then painted in classic or pearl white or metallic silver, rose gold, bronze or gold paint before being framed.

Choosing a frame
We have a huge selection of frames to choose from to match most homes and existing decor.
You will find it easier to choose your frame, mount and paint colours if you know where you will hang the finished frame.
To help you decide you can ask yourself a few questions, such as:

  •     Where will I hang my frame - do I need to match it to the decor or frames of an existing room?
  •     Do I want to include a landscape or portrait photo in the frame? Which photo?
  •     How many raised impressions do I want?
  •     What layout of hands and feet do I want?
  •     What size frame do I want?
  •     What colour should the frame rim be?
  •     What colour should the raised impressions be?
  •     What colour should the back mount be?
  •     Do I want an engraved name-plate with my child's name and age? Which colour? Which font?

The turnaround is normally 4-8 weeks depending on your caster but this can extend at busier times or during the school summer holidays. If you have a deadline please let your caster know when you book.

To help you decide which frame colour and paint combination to choose you can ask yourself a few questions, such as:

  • Where will I hang my frame - do I need to match it to the decor of an existing room?
  • Do I want to include a landscape or portrait photo in the frame?
  • How many 3D hand and foot casts/clay impressions do I want - 1, 2 or 4?
  • What combination of hands and feet do I want?
  • What size frame do I want? Our frames are measured in GLASS SIZE.
  • What colour should the frame rim be?
  • What colour should the casts/impressions be?
  • What colour should the front and back mounts be?
  • Do I want an engraved name-plate with my child's name and age? Which colour? Which font?
  • Do I want an under mount to create a stepped, two-colour effect for my front mount?
