"When I opened the mould I cried!"

We don't want to make you cry - unless they are happy tears! When new mum, Sadie, saw the beautiful casts she made of her beautiful daughter that's exactly what happened - she cried happy tears when she saw the casts.
Mum to 17-month-old Bonnie, Sadie got in touch to share her experience of casting and it's really heart warming. She said, "When I opened the mould I cried. [The cast] is a part of my daughter, Bonnie, that I can treasure forever. "

Sadie also told us: "I've wanted to make a hand cast for a while. We've tried different kits but this is by far the best. I'll be buying a lot more from you for family and friends.

BabyRice Casting Kits are available from £14.95 for our Basic Baby Casting Kit or £24.95 for a Large Value Kit with is boxed and gift-ready.

Incredibly Detailed Foot Cast by Woody Bears Hand Casting & Hire

This incredibly detailed foot cast was created by proud mum Aimee, who just happens to be a very talented professional caster!

The Hertfordshire-based mum of four has been casting professionally for 3 years now. While Aimee has created LOTS of casts over the years, this one holds a special place in her heart as it's the cast of her youngest child, Wolfie. Taken when he was just 1 day old, this special cast captures a moment in time and celebrates a new addition joining a loving family.

Woody Bears Hand Casting & Hire

Aimee told us that this is one of the most detailed casts she's ever created, made possible thanks to BabyRice Skin Safe Alginate. Our alginate is hypoallergenic, so it's suitable for use on even the softest and newest newborn skin. Thanks to it's fast-setting properties, BabyRice alginate has a short working time so you don't have to leave baby's hands and feet in the moulding material for long - around 30-60 seconds is enough to create a detailed cast.
If you are looking for a professional caster in your area, do let us know. We supply casting materials to casting studios across the UK and Europe, so we may well be able to recommend a caster in your area.

Annual Birthday Hand and Foot Casts - You'll Love this Idea!

With a BabyRice hand and foot casting kit you can create incredibly lifelike replica casts of your baby's tiny hands and feet. The results are simply stunning and as a result, casting can become addictive! Just ask Emma Fishee, proud mum to Sebastian.

Emma bought her first BabyRice Baby Hand & Foot Casting Kit back in 2016 to cast her newborn son's hands and feet. Emma has returned to BabyRice every year since to make a new cast of her son's hands and feet.

Emma Fishee Hand Casts in Shabby Chic Frame

Emma told us “We did a hand and foot cast when our son was new born We have done castings on his birthday every year since... it's so lovely to see where he was and where he is.”

Casting with toddlers can be more difficult than casting with babies as they may be uncertain about placing their hands in the alginate. We think Emma has done a fantastic job here! You can really see the detail of each cast and how Sebastian has grown from a tiny newborn to a big-little boy. Each cast has a handwritten label with the age of the cast and and the date it was taken, which is a lovely personal touch.

Emma started her casting journey with a BabyRice Shabby Chic Frame Casting Kit with Silver Paint (product code: 726.BLKSGL.BLKBKG6x4OFFCTR.TXT.SIL)

Declan & Eviee's Hand Casts

Following the birth of her second child mum, Beckie, decided to cast the hands and feet of both her children, Declan 3 years and Eviee 2 months. Despite having the pot of metallic paint that is supplied with each BabyRice Casting Kit, this mum decided to leave her casts unpainted. And why not, they are absolutely beautiful as they are. "The detail on them is crazy, I'm so pleased with them! Such a beautiful keepsake to remember those tiny little hands and feet as they don't stay little for long," said Beckie.  We couldn't agree more. These are gorgeous!

Baby, Adult and Pet Casting by Toni Harling Moore

When we received a Facebook message from Toni, we were bowled over when we saw how many casts she'd made using our BabyRice Skin Safe Alginate and casting plaster. Toni first got to grips with casting when her son Alfie was born in 2016. Then a new mum, Toni set about casting his tiny little hands and feet. She was so happy with the results that she's just kept going. Toni has since welcomed baby Harry to the family and, of course, she created baby hand casts for him too.

Big brother Alfie's hands and feet were cast at 12 weeks. New baby Harry's hands and feet were cast at 13 weeks. Both sets of casts are absolutely scrumptious!

Baby hand and foot casts, created by Toni Harling Moore

"I'm so happy with them, and they are such amazing, easy to use product!" said Toni. 


After she got to grips with baby hand casting, Toni moved on to creating casts for the older members of her family. Toni used BabyRice Skin Safe Alginate and BabyRice casting plaster to create a plaster cast of her Mum and Grandad holding hands. This very precious cast was a special birthday gift for Toni's Mum. What a sweet gift!

Adult hand casting kit created by Toni Harling Moore


When Toni's beloved dog, Harvey. passed away very suddenly, she created a beautiful memorial by casting his paws. Toni told us, "I had to take this cast after he had passed. But so glad we got them before he was taken to be cremated. This is very precious."

Paw cast by Toni Harling Moore


Toni was called upon to create another memorial casting when a close friend of the family passed away. In order to create this bereavement casting, Toni visited the chapel of rest and took two impressions and for each of her friend's daughters. "These ones I think are my favourite. So much love went into these ones," said Toni.

Memorial adult hand cast by Toni Harling Moore

"I get really excited (and scared) to peel away the alginate and see how they've turned out! Especially with the little ones hands/feet as you never know what position they're going to be in, and are always so different!" 

We are so impressed by Toni's casting and her thoughtful gifts. Keep up the good work Toni!

Isla-Rae's Six Week Hand & Foot Cast

This beautifully framed baby hand and foot cast was sent to us by new mum Aimee. As well as getting to grips with the whildwind that is being mum to newborn Isla-Rae, Aimee also found time to make casts of her little one's hands and feet using a BabyRice Value Baby Hand Casting Kit. Aimee was so pleased with the results, she couldn't wait to share them, saying, "We had lots of fun with our casting set. The instructions were nice and easy to understand." Well, Aimee, we're glad you think so and we're not surprised you happy with the results as you've done a fab job. Well done!

Isla-Rae was just six weeks old when mum Aimee created these casts and framed them in a white shadow box frame. The wooden tiles with Isla-Rae's name and vital statistics (name, date and time of birth and birth weight) are a lovely detail. We like your style Aimee.

Baby Essie's Hand & Foot Cast - 8 & 12 Weeks

We love this one, the end result is simply stunning, a real masterpiece for the wall! A big thank you to Jo, Jim and Essie for sending us some pics. This kit is our Large 3D Baby Casting Kit with White Deep Box Display Frame with Pewter paint for the casts. A great close up shot of each of the casts, painted in pewter, how gorgeous are these!?

Jo says:
We took the 4 casts of Essie's hands and feet between the age of 8 and 12 weeks - the hands were a little tricky to get right! We wanted to keep taking casts until we got the perfect hand casts, she seemed to just bunch her fist up every time! We had difficulty getting the plaster into the fingertips when they were pointing upwards (SO frustrating!) We tried when she was asleep (success!) and calm (success!) We are just so, so pleased with the finished result, it looks better than other ones we have seen that have been done professionally, for a LOT more money. I definitely think if you do it yourselves you get a better finish (although I am a perfectionist!) and it just means more that you have done it together. It is now in pride of place in our lounge!
Thanks again, Jo, Jim & Essie xxx

This one is our Large or Twins 3D Baby Casts Kit, Antique Silver Frame Hands Foot (product number 703.WHT4.WHTBKG.SIL)

Lina persevered with her kit, she struggled a bit at first to get some good casts and contacted us for some help. We sent her some more alginate along with a little advice and then Lina got the hang of it and created these 4 wonderful casts. Lina says:

"OMG!! TRULY A LABOUR OF LOVE! Thank goodness I ignored my impatient husband and tears from my little one because look at this beautiful piece. I am so glad I did not give up. I am so pleased with it. It took forever to find the time to get the right pic, process the pic, paint the casts and put it together. Now it's finally done.

I wanted to thank you for sending me the extra alginate. Honestly, I felt so defeated. This was not easy but so worth the trouble. Thanks so much!"

And we think you'll agree that a little perseverance goes a long way and Lina now has this wonderful keepsake to treasure forever!

Four Sibling Hand Casts

This is one of our favourite casting stories. While expecting their first child, Frank and Georgina purchased four BabyRice Baby Hand Casting Kits. When their first born, Otis, arrived, they cast his little hands at eight weeks. Otis was soon joined by sister Zillah, then Arabella, before baby brother Austin arrived to complete the set. Each siblings hands and feet were cast at eight weeks, using the kits that mum and dad had bought while pregnant with Otis. All four of the family casts were created using the BabyRice Large Baby Casting Kit with Rococo Black Frame and Silver Paint (product number 113.BLKSGL.BLKBKG.SIL).
After they cast Austin's feet, Frank and Georgina got in touch to share their story, saying:
We always hoped we would be blessed with four kiddies so I bought four frames in faith.  We just hadour fourth baby, so we got to complete the set! We had two boys & two girls, Otis, Zillah, Arabella & Austin, we took all their casts at eight weeks old and by baby three we thought we were pros! I used bronze for the boys & silver for the girls. Thank you very much for the beautiful frames we really love to see them and everyone always comments on them when they call by.
Thank you

I just wanted to share the hand casts we made using our BabyRice hand casting Kit.

I absolutely loved this product and it was so special for us to be able to capture just how small our baby boy Eli is as he was born 8 weeks early.... if only we could have done it then. The individual hand was done at 5 weeks old and then the hand and foot set in the frame was done recently at 11 weeks old.

Thank you for a great product and keepsake. I am sure that someday he will love seeing how small he was.
