Lifecast Sculpture - Child, Adult and Family Body Casts

Commission a lifecast sculpture of yourself or loved ones to create an heirloom piece of art. Whether a child, teenager, adult or family piece, a life cast sculpture captures the contours and texture of the human body in exquisite detail. Casting Queen will then convert those alluring details into a treasured keepsake.

How we take the cast

The mould is taken directly from the model's body using a substance called alginate - the same product dentists use to mould your teeth. The alginate sets within minutes to form a flexible impression. Where appropriate, the mould is then reinforced with plaster, webbing and supports so that the shape of the mould is maintained. The model is then helped to separate themselves from the mould. A Plaster cast is taken from this mould. The rest depends on what material has been chosen to make the sculpture.

Body casting - torso, back, bust and bottom casts

A lifecast can be taken of a torso, back, bust or bottom and cast into a bronze or plaster sculpture. Bronze can be polished or patinated to produce a stunning sculpture. Plaster is offered in natural white, or painted in a choice of colours.
