I love a good belly cast! I’m a sucker for them. Even if it wasn’t me who did the original pregnant belly casting.
The cast featured here came to me needing some real TLC. It was, for some reason, a cast made from a cast…a replica. It was a little flimsy, had tissue paper stuck on it, and wasn’t attractive at all. I can say that because it’s owner was going to throw it in the bin!! 🙁
So out came my belly casting toolbox. I firstly removed some of the paper from the cast……rendered on some nipples to give it a little more form….then rendered the whole thing. I must say that EVERY time I went to render it, we had a heat wave and I couldn’t work on it! LOL But we got there eventually, after some sanding, deliberating, undercoating, painting, and finally, hanging.
I love the crisp clean design. Less is more in this case for sure.
So folks, if you yourself are pregnant, or you are searching for a Blessingway or Baby Shower gift for a friend, you might consider a belly cast. I service Sydney, the Central Coast, Hunter and Newcastle regions. And just in case you have tried a D.I.Y. cast and it didn’t turn out quite how you had hoped, I can probably turn it into a masterpiece. I also stock top quality medical grade plaster bandages, sold with casting instructions, if you are feeling adventurous. Check out http://www.pickledtink.com.au/belly-casting/ for pricing.
