PLANNING AND PREPARATION

The mold making process involves preparing the molding paste and placing the baby's hand or foot into it and keep still for the paste to clot completely. Molding powders are also known as alginate; used by various industries such as for food emulsifier, and dental impression.
Preparing the molding paste is quite easy, combine the required portion of the molding powder and water. Mix the 2 together in a large Salad bowl quickly. This complete casting kit comes with all the steps and calculation to what to work it out precisely.


TIP 1: When making the mold for your baby/infant up to 6 months old, it is best done while they are asleep on your arm, so there is less movement for longer period of time. 
TIP 2: For toddler, if you have one that tends to fiddle in this process, we find that bribing them with their favorite treats work best; tell them it is theirs if they can play still. You could also ask them to hold their small favorite treats like a couple of jelly beans. 
TIP 3: Instead of using plastic bag, use clear plastic cup for baby hand, and takeaway container for foot. First timers will find it much easier because of the rigid shape, and helps you focus in keeping your baby's hand/foot centered and not touching the mold wall.

THE MOLDING PROCESS

  • Prepare the mold paste
  • Create one hand or foot mold at a time, dip your baby's hand or foot into the paste. Ensure hand/foot has full skin contact and not touching the wall of mold.
  • Remove your baby's hand/foot once the paste is completely hardened, gently wiggle hand/foot around to let air in, then gently pull out.

TIP 1: The timing is very important here in the whole process, the paste should be smooth and even, stir quickly with the ladle and work your way to the base of the mixing bowl. 
TIP 2: If you do spill some paste onto carpet or your clothing, simply wait for it to dry and rub it off. 
TIP 3: Having another person to assist in the process is fun and easier.

THE CASTING PROCESS

  • After you have created a pair of moulds, prepare the casting paste and pour into the mould and let it sit for few hours.
  • Break the mould gently with your hand.
  • Inspect the casting immediately for any imperfections such as small bubbles, use tooth picks to push it off.

TIP 1: Pour slowly with small amount of casting paste at a time into the mould cavity, tilt the mould side to side to allow air bubble to escape from some tight areas. 
TIP 2: Patch small bubble holes with mixing some casting paste.

THE FINISHING TOUCH

Let your casting sit in a well ventilated place to dry.
Paint the casting with 2 thin coats of paint will help protect the surface and looks great too. 

TIP 1: The statue(s) can be displayed alone or can be mounted on a plaque or put into a display box.
