Pregnancy Projects Belly Casting
Pregnancy Project make a belly cast.
Pregnancy Project make a belly cast at home. Why not make a belly bowl from an online casting kit, which you can display, decorate or use at a baby photo shoot.
I have been feeling very sad that there will be current mums to be unable to have a professional pregnancy photo session. It just popped into my head this morning, this is something pregnant mums can do during this time while we all have to self isolate because of coronavirus. Home based creative projects while pregnant all about the bump!
Its a bit messy but lots of fun, if you have siblings at home you can get them involved in the making.
When I made mine it involved wrapping me in cling film , but in hind sight it would have been a better cast if I had applied vaseline instead. It was 12 years ago, I am sure there are better instructions in the box now !
Once dried you can embellish them with paint, mosaic, or découpage.
If I did in now I would probably look for inspiration in my home for decoration.
Or you could decoupage your baby first year on it Grayson Perry style. It will be the record of an important vessel after all 🙂
Lots of videos how to on you tube!
Where to get kits online:
There are how to videos on the board and on tube.
If you keep it white, it can be used making your baby milestone photos uniquely your own.
