Frequently Asked Questions

Having worked as an artist and an instructor for over thirty years, it is my pleasure to come in contact with so many families. Some have been in my life since their first child and have returned with special requests to commemorate first communion, ballet tributes, anniversaries and more. Finding new ways to create casting sculptures and constantly challenging my creativity. Offering people something so special and personal, has proven to be a joy and not a job.

Full payment is made at the time of casting.

Please allow an hour and a half for the appointment. Clothing may have to be removed or rolled up to avoid getting messy.

Is The Molding Cream Safe For Baby's Skin?

This seaweed based product is gentle and hypoallergenic. Approved for body casting for children and adults. Baby or children’s hands/feet are cast using a 3 min. color changing cream. Setting time is about sixty seconds.

There aren’t any age restrictions for taking a mold impression.  We also work with your favorite pet in creating a paw keepsake.

A variety of frame colors, mats and finishes for your sculpture will be made available at the time of casting. Personalized designs may be created to suit your request.

When Will I Have My Finished Keepsake?

Please allow three to five weeks to have a completed framed keepsake. Several stages of preparation prior to framing must be followed. If the sculpture is free standing or on a base, the time may be less.
