Welcome to Baby Bump Casts. If you or someone you know is 8 months pregnant, a Baby Bump Cast is a GREAT way to capture this special time. If you are expecting we would like to say, Congratulations! We are so excited for your new addition to your family and we would like to help you preserve this precious moment in your pregnancy. Whether you are a first time mommy or you have other children of your own we would like to welcome you to explore our website. We have much to offer at affordable prices. We are happy to answer any questions.
We have done much research to get you materials that are non-allergenic and non-toxic and are safe for both mommy and baby.
It will take about 3 weeks for you to get your cast back depending on the amount of work needed on it. It may also take a little longer if there are several casts a head of yours. We will do our best to get it to you in a timely manner.
It is a FUN and EASY way to get a three dimensional copy of your belly while you are pregnant.
We use a material called Plaster Wrap. What is Plaster Wrap? It is a safe non-toxic and non-hypoallergenic cloth that has been dipped in plaster. We use Vaseline (which is safe to use) before placing the plaster cloths on your skin so they come off easily.
It’s simple! Come in when you are at the beginning of your eighth month. You will be standing the whole time to get the shape of your belly just right. If you prefer to sit, we have a comfortable chair and you will still get nice results. We put lots of Vaseline on your belly to keep the Plaster Wrap from sticking to your belly. Then we dip each cloth in warm water and place it on you in layers. You will begin to feel it coming off of you. It sets quickly so after it is set we will remove it. We will clean you up a little bit (you'll want to take a shower when you get home) and you are free to go home. This takes about an hour to an hour and a half.
Wear old sweat pants or shorts and an old T-Shirt that you don't care about. We try to cover you up but you will still get plaster on them. If you we are casting your breasts as well as your belly and you would prefer to be modest then wear your bra and an old tank top. We will cut the straps of the tank top but not your bra so get a cheap tank top at Good Will.
I fix up your cast. I sand it, put gesso on it and paint it with one color of your choice. I also add twine or ribbon so it is ready to hang. I will personally put your baby's full name and Date of Birth on your cast for FREE!!!
If they are clothes you don't care about you can throw them away. If you want to keep them then put your shirt and pants in a bucket full of water when you get home. DO NOT put your clothes directly in the washer if they have plaster on them. The plaster will clog your drains and will be very expensive to fix. After your clothes have been soaking for a day or two check and make sure all the plaster is off (you may have to pull some chunks off). They will then be safe to put in the washer.
You may be wondering, why should I get a Baby Bump Cast? What am I going to do with it? Baby Bump Casts are a great way to cherish these special moments.
The process of a baby growing inside of a person has always been fascinating to me. I love learning about the steps of growth a baby has to go through in mommy's tummy. I myself, have not had any children yet. I’ve been married for almost two years now but my husband and I have decided to wait for another year but in this time I have realized that there is so much you have to prepare for. Not only financially, but physically, spiritually, emotionally, your marriage, jobs, etc… It’s a new life and though you will never be fully prepared I believe it is important, if you can, to prepare your home and your self for pregnancy and after the baby is born. The bond between a mother and baby is so special that is why we celebrate new life with Baby Bump Casts. You can hang it in your nursery or make a bowl with it.
Baby Bump Casts are great gifts for mommy and baby whether this is her first or fifth. They're fun to either cast or have everyone decorate it at her Baby Shower.
Maybe, you aren't able to get that Baby Bump Cast for that special person right away because they live in another state or the timing just isn't right. No worries, we've got you covered with Gift Certificates. We'll work out the details with you and you can pay for the cost of the cast right then and there. We will give you the gift certificate with that amount. You can then give it to that person as a gift and we will set an appointment for them at their most convenient time to take a cast of their Baby Bump. We will discuss matters of shipment with you at the time of purchasing the certificate.
Show off your Beautiful Baby Bump.
This includes Breasts and Belly.
We will hand paint your cast with your choice of animals, flowers, etc...

My name is Jessica Vail. I am a wife, a daughter, and an artist. I have had a passion for art when I was very young and I have been able to learn and develop my skills in art, specifically in sculpture.
I went to college at Colorado Mesa University for five years. There I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Art History and Studio Arts - Sculpture. I learned so much about metal casting and had the privilege of making so many of my own sculptures out of bronze, steel, aluminum, iron, copper, etc… There I learned all about alginate. This is the same material I use for all my hand castings. I made a few sculptures of my own hands out of plaster and iron.
After I graduated, I learned even more skills in casting when I worked for a company that casted dinosaur bones. I learned so much about dinosaurs and casting, as well as painting on resin, that I was able to take those techniques and apply them to hand casting.
One day, I went to my mom, Amy, who has always wanted to have her own music studio, and I said, “hey, we should go into business together.” She thought and prayed about it and here we are. I have had the privilege of casting other people hands for about a year now and the best part is seeing their faces light up when they receive their own cast. Bringing joy to others and being able to paint and sculpt brings joy to me.
