Mum's Hands and Baby's Feet by Jenny
Jenny's stunning hands and baby feet cast is truly spectacular! The easiest way to achieve this heart shaped cast is to cast each of baby's feet separately, then cast the parent hands in the heart shaped pose, also separately. When all of the casts have dried, baby's foot casts can be placed into the heart-shaped parent hand cast. If you want create this style of cast please do check that your baby's feet are still small enough to sit in your hands like this. It's a good idea to create your baby's casts when they are still tiny - you can always make the parent hand cast at a later date. See here for affordable baby casting kits. Want the casting materials only to create this cast? You will need at least 2kg of BabyRice Alginate and 3kg of Casting Plaster, see here for our alginate and plaster.

When I opened the mould I cried! - 2019
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."
Sending us her pics, Kathryn got in touch to say, "Just wanted to say how pleased I was with my casting kit. Finally got around to making it today. Thank you x"
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 Casting Kit with is boxed and gift-ready.
Incredibly Detailed Foot Cast by Amie at Woody Bears Hand Casting & Hire
This incredibly detailed foot cast was created by proud mum Amie, who just happens to be a very talented professional caster!
The Hertfordshire-based mum of four has been casting professionally for many years now. Whilst Amie 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.
Amie 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.
Sebastian's Annual Birthday Hand and Foot Casts - 2016 - 2019
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 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)
The Scott Family Baby Casting - How to Create the Perfect Baby Keepsake
We were lucky enough to visit the home of the gorgeous Scott family to film them making their first ever baby hand cast. We love this behind the scenes pic from our shoot as it captures just how happy mum, Laura, was with the final cast.
Before baby Abbie's casts were mounted and framed, we took a close look at them in dad Tim's hands - look how tiny these 5 month old casts are:
And here is the final, framed hand and foot cast with Abbie's photo and details added in the frame:
The Scott family chose a Newborn Baby Casting Kit with Solid Oak Frame & Silver Paint. You can buy your own kit here >>
The LOVE frame casts - 2019
This gorgeous framed cast was created by our talented home casting team, but it's so good we had to include it in this gallery as you can easily recreate this cast using our DIY casting materials craft blanks and a 60x20cm box frame. The casts in this frame were of a 1 year old's hand cast and a 7 and 9 year old's foot cast.

Isla-Rae's Six Week Hand & Foot Cast - 2018
This beautifully framed baby hand and foot cast was sent to us by new mum Aimee. As well as getting to grips with the whirlwind 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. Aimee also created this adorable Christmas bauble hand cast, a perfect keepsake decoration for the Christmas Tree.
Baby Essie's Hand & Foot Cast - 8 & 12 Weeks - 2015
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, how gorgeous are these!?:
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!

"Hello there, just sharing a photo of the finished product...really happy with this lovely keepsake - thanks very much!"
Luca was 20 months and Nathan 2 months old on the photo, and the casts were taken at 15 months for Luca and 7 weeks for little Nathan - great to have both in one place like this :)

Four Sets of Baby Hand and Foot Casts - from 2009 onwards
This is one of our favourite casting stories. While expecting their first child, Frank and Georgina purchased four (yes, four!) BabyRice Baby Casting Kit with Black Ornate frames. When their first born, Otis, arrived, they cast his little hands & feet 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 whilst initially pregnant with Otis - what a story! All four of the children's 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 had our 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 paint for the boys & silver paint 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.
Frank & Georgina
Eli's Baby Hand Casts at 11 Weeks - 2013
Thank you to Janita for sending in her photos of her baby's hand and foot casts.

This kit is our Silver Footprints Baby Casting Kit, Antique Silver Frame with Black Display (product code: 203.BLK.BLKBKG.SIL)
Janita told us:
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.

Baby Hands and Feet Casting - 2011 & 2014
Thank you so much Zoe for this one. Zoe had a kit from us back in 2011 and then after the birth of her second child, came back for the same kit 3 years later in 2014! Look at the fabulous job she has done and we love Zoe's baby feet photos in muted sepia tones in place of baby face photos - the entire display looks super stylish and wouldn't look out of place in a fancy arts and crafts gallery!
"I bought a mould for my son and than I had another son so I bought another and they turned out so beautifully. I have wall mounted them and thought I would share a photo.

Thank you Fran for your great pics, Fran took a cast of her 10 week old son and is so pleased with the results.
Fran said "I did this foot cast of my baby boy when he was 10 weeks old. The detail the cast picked up is beautiful. It is a lovely momento that I will treasure forever! He is now about to turn one. They don't stay little for long!"
You're sooooo right Fran! Babies grow so quickly you just can't imagine how tiny they were when they were newborns which is why our baby casting kits are so great as they capture babies tiny hands and feet in fabulous 3D detail!
Fran used our kit 209.WHT.WHTBKG.SIL

A big thanks to Maria who had her baby casting kit bought for her as a gift.

I love it! Thank you xx"
