Life-casting limbs

Various baby foot casts from only 1 week old.


The life casts displayed on these pages were taken with great care and concern for safety, and should only be attempted by skilled operators.

Although alginate (the compound used) is completely non toxic, small children and babies may easily choke or suffocate if allowed to bring the material in contact with their nose or mouth - as it can quickly form itself into a vacuum.

It would be extreemly dangerous to attempt to take such a cast unless you already possessed a great deal of experience, and first considered all the necessary safety precautions  when dealing with infants.
