Step 1: Making the mould using Chromatic Alginate

Preparation is key. Before making the mould, practice placing the child's hands or feet into your container. Tupperware, paint tubs or small bowls work well, depending on the size of the child's limbs. You may want to get an assistant to help you. For best results, oil the hands/feet with olive oil or petroleum jelly, as this will make them easier to remove from the mixture.

This kit contains enough alginate and plaster to create around 2 casts of a newborn baby, or 1/2 casts of an older child. To avoid wastage, try to find suitably sized containers, otherwise you may use too much alginate. Try this on the first hand or foot first, before moving onto the next stage, so you can see if any improvements are made in your next casts.

TIP:Practice makes perfect! Try a small test on your finger first by measuring 50ml of water into a small cup/mug, then slowly pouring in the same volume of alginate. Mix together for 1 minute, and then put your finger in. Wait until it sets light grey.

Step 2: Pouring the Plaster of Paris into the mould to create the Cast

Step 3: Revealing & finishing your new Cast - this is the exciting bit!

Step 4: Framing your new cast
