The Process

The impression that we will take replicates the finest of details from fingerprints to wrinkles or even that special ring, the sculpture is a part of you.

The impression taking process itself will take from just a few minutes for babies, and up to ten minutes for adult hands. Whilst the negative impression itself takes just 2 minutes we like to allow approximately one hour per appointment. This allows us to take you through the process in detail, explore your thoughts and ideas, and discuss the presentation of your finished sculpture. It also gives babies and younger children time to relax and feel comfortable in their surroundings. The more settled they are, the more likely they are to be willing participants.

Whilst this is a relatively quick process, we do need to be mindful that very young babies may not want to keep still for long enough to take the impression. If this is proving difficult for any reason, then it’s not a problem. We can wait until the little one is feeling a bit more cooperative, try a joint casting with the parent to help keep control or simply reschedule another appointment.

 

 

 

 

 

We would always advise wearing old clothing wherever possible, especially when young children are involved. It’s not usually messy but better safe than sorry.

Please note that any skin indentations, such as those caused by tight fitting clothing or jewellery, can take over an hour to disappear, so we would advise removal of these items well before your appointment.
