Pregnant Belly Casting – A Few Ideas and Some Inspiration
What is a pregnancy belly cast?
A pregnant tummy or belly cast is a plaster cast made of an expecting mum’s beautiful pregnant form. Our pregnant belly casting kit enables mums to create a lasting memory of their pregnancy in the privacy of their home in just 30 minutes. Photos and video can’t capture an expecting mum’s shape the way our pregnant belly cast can. A pregnancy keepsake in the form of this cast enables a mum to forever remember how she looked during her pregnancy and the special nine months she shared with her growing baby.
As one mum aptly put it, “It is a really cool way of capturing your pregnant body. You can show your child later that this is what mum looked like when you were inside!”
The belly casts featured above are by Tina Killackey. We think the way she has decorated these casts is truly inspirational. Why not have a go with acrylic hobby paints. Take a look at her website for more wonderful work.…http://www.renaissancehomeaz.com/Body_Cast.htm

Is a pregnancy belly cast hard to make?
It is probably one of the easiest castings to do with a little bit of help from your partner or friend.
We recommend this approach if you want to make a lasting memento of your big bump. It is very easy to do. You buy 4 rolls of ModRoc Plaster of Paris Bandage and by following the included instructions, you can reproduce your bump successfully – but it is a negative or a mask.
Although it is referred to as a casting, this kit is really a belly mask kit so it makes a plaster bandage mask of your torso or bump. It is more of a memento than an actual reproduction of your bump or torso. If you want a positive which is then a reproduction of your bump, you can make a Papier Mache positive inside the negative ModRoc moulding or mask. In this case, you have to use cling film on your body before applying the ModRoc Plaster Bandage.
We do a whole range of ModRoc Plaster of Paris Bandages. Click here to view our ModRoc Plaster of Paris Bandage in our Craftmill Shop.
If you want a super smooth finish, purchase a bag of casting plaster which you can mix to a liquid and smooth over the belly mask once its done. Then how about decorating beautifully (or wildly) with acrylic paints? Thanks to Tina Killackey for working with us in allowing us to use her amazing belly casting photos.
Casting a full Pregnant Belly torso neck to crotch
This is more complex than a simple modroc belly mask. Pregnant belly moulding and casting using alginate is the hardest of the castings to attempt. It requires 4 people including the model. I do not recommend it for anyone but an experienced sculptor. This kit comprises 5 bags of Chromatic Alginate, 18 kg of Fine Casting Plaster and 12 rolls of 15cm x 2.7m of Modroc. If you want it ask and we will give you a quote.
Instead of Plaster, you can use Papier Mache or Sculptamold. These are much lighter products which can be modelled into the body cavity of the mould.
