Service Description

Book in for a castings appointment at Dixie Dot Crafts and preserve those precious memories with a 3D life cast. Whether it's for babies, siblings, or the whole family, Ceri from Lollipops and Ladybirds will ensure that this ultimate keepsake is a perfect representation of your special bond. During your appointment, Ceri will take a 3D mould of your baby's hand or foot. This takes around 2 minutes for each hand and foot and is entirely safe. We will dip your baby's hand or foot into a warm mixture which quickly turns into a rubbery, flexible mould. Your baby's hand or foot is then gently slipped out of the mould. Babies who are sleeping during casting often do not wake as the process is very gentle. We do recommend that babies are happier after feeding / sleeping when they are most comfortable. We can take short breaks if needed for you to feed your baby during our appointment. The material we use is a natural product, made from seaweed, and is non-toxic and biodegradable. We will chat you through the colour options for your casts and the frames available. Every frame is hand-built to fit your child's casts. Prices shown are based on babies but we offer sibling options and casting for older children as well as adults and whole families. If you can't find a price for what you are looking for, please get in touch and we can offer a bespoke casting for you. Please allow around 45 minutes for your casting appointment. Due to the amount of time we spend making your casts perfect, the end product will take approximately 8-10 weeks so please factor this timescale in if you are purchasing a cast as a gift for someone. For pricing options and ideas head to (or google Lollipops and Ladybirds) The £10 that you pay today will secure your booking as a deposit and the remainder is payable on the day.
