Dog Paw Sculptures Cast in Bronze

A cast of your dog's paw creates a lasting memento of a special pet. Through life casting we are able to create a wonderfully evocative sculpture of your pet - they make particularly fine paperweights! The amazing detail that a life cast can capture will be translated into a lasting tribute to your beloved and loyal ‘best friend’.

How we cast your dog's paw

At Casting Queen we pride ourselves on making the whole process run as smoothly as possible. Your dog's claws and the fur surrounding their pads should be clipped in advance to show them at their best. Once you arrive we try to make your dog relaxed before applying a layer of Vaseline to their paw to prevent their fur sticking to the mould. The paw is then immersed in a container of blancmange-like material called alginate which will gradually set after 2-3 minutes. Once set the dog's paw is carefully withdrawn from the mould and the rest is up to us.

Whilst all reasonable requests are considered, the main criteria is whether you can confidently hold your pet still for the 2-3 minutes that it takes the casting material to set. Only you know your own dog’s temperament.
