Can you shrink a Life Casting?

Alginate is a rubbery soft skin safe material used by dentists to take moulds of peoples teeth. We have our own special mixes for different types of castings. Our baby and kids mix changes colour and is much quicker so they don't have to stay still for a minute and can enjoy the magic of the material.

What is alginate?

Pregnancy castings are safe when carried out by professionals. At Angelcasts Ami has a huge experience casting expecting mums and will always go through the process with you to make it as comfortable for you as possible. It is important to be honest about your pregnancy journey as most things we can overcome to create a keepsake for you & make any adjustments as required. Most of our pregnancy castings we will always carry out seated and comfortably for mum.

Are Pregnancy Castings Safe?

Body castings are quick, fun and friendly and taken by Ami a female life caster with over 10 years experience in Film & TV.

Small castings such as lips, nipples, half faces, faces, breasts take 2 minutes to 15 minutes.

Larger castings such as bottoms, torsos, backs & pregnancy castings will take 25 - 35 minutes.

Couple body castings or full length body castings take around 35 - 40 minutes and require an extra life caster.

Angelcasts will never share any images of your casting, private request without your permission. You are welcome to take photos of the process and video moments with a friend or partner. However if you choose to share those then we are happy to be tagged, if you don't want anything online we won't share any of the work. Although we do ask if you don't mind, if we can as it helps us show future clients what is possible in regards to styles and colour choices. But it is your choice.

Sharing Images
Yes we love to work with foundry bronze and work closely with an arts foundry and can turn any life cast, bespoke sculpture and more into an indoor or outdoor piece of art for you. Turn around times vary on size and complexity of the piece and range from 8 weeks - 24 weeks.
Can you make in Foundry Bronze?

View our Media booking page, we will always try to help where we can & decrease our turn around times to work with filming schedules. We have a strict privacy policy & will not share any images, products or details until released from the production company or client. All originals that are not claimed or used as part of the production will be destroyed unless the client requests otherwise.
