3D Casts – Pet Prints

3D Casts of your beloved pet

How are 3D pet casts created?

 

You will need to make an appointment to visit the studio here in Lytchett Matravers in Poole.  Bring along your dog’s favourite treats so that they can be distracted if needed.

If you have a particularly lively dog or one with long fur then you will be advised to go for the flat casting with a raised effect – so your dog does not suffer any discomfort whilst the process takes place.

The 3D pet casts are created in exactly the same way as human castings are using alginate.

Once a mould has been created we use precious plaster to create a plaster cast.

This is sanded and finished to create a beautiful free-standing keepsake which can then be painted.

 

Phoebe the rescue Shih Tzu had her paw cast and created into a solid bronze paperweight.  Check out how she got on in this video:-

Plaster Cast of Hand holding Dog Paw

If you have a particularly calm dog the creation of you holding their paw is a beautiful way to remember their love and affection.

 

For tose looking for the ultimate in luxury you may want to consider having your cast created in one of the following options:-

  • Solid Bronze
  • Lead Crystal Glass
  • Hallmarked Sterling Silver

The Luxury Solid Bronze Pet Cast

 

This is by far the most popular option for many of our clients.  The detail is second to none and the final finish is incredibly heavy. 

Memorial Dog Paw Casting – Liefie

Sadly, our pets are sometimes taken before their time. This was true for Liefie, a much loved pet who had a sudden heart attack at the age of six. The client was desperate to have a keepsake created to remember Liefe by and time was running out.  I travelled to the dog crematorium and a  paw cast was taken of Liefie.  From this two stunning solid bronze engrved paperweight keepsakes were created in Liefie’s memory.

“Dear Glenda - The casts arrived yesterday... we are all stunned by what you have managed to do and just can’t thank you enough, obviously very emotional for us but these will provide wonderful memories. Thank you again”.

This option looks stunning when complimented with a slate mount.  Positioned near daylight allows you to fully apreciate all the intricate detail captured at the time of the casting.
