Casting Kits – thumbs up or thumbs down? All too often we see clients who tell us of the issues they have faced when using Casting kits. Stressful times when they try to capture that special memory of their child’s tiny hands and feet. It appears to be more common than the parents realise. They often think its something they are doing wrong. So what is the problem with these kits? Why do companies offer products that are not fit for the purpose they were intended for?
Castings and Impressions need a skill to create. This is why i offer training in this field. Someone who has undertaken the training has developed the techniques. All too often a casting kits make it look easy. Good Packaging of what you can achieve is on the front of each box and they are not that cheap. The materials supplied in casting kits are often minimal and of poor quality. This makes the task in hand difficult. It also puts added pressure on the buyer to get the cast or impression right the first time they have a go. Experience has shown that this can be a false expense. It results in parents contacting companies to re-do the casts. They were unable to get the result they desire. When choosing a company, don’t always go by the price, do your research.
