Belly casting while your waiting for your babe!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Today my husband did our first belly cast, and let me tell you it was really fun!
We ended up using the kitchen and putting down art paper on the floor, I used olive oil for my body so it wouldn't stick, it looks amazing, I'm so happy now that we didn't have our baby sooner, since this is our last baby and first belly cast,
Mon if we still haven't had the baby we're going to try to do two more casts in different positions, it really looks like a piece of art I'm really impressed!
So if you haven't had your baby yet, I really suggest taking the time to do one with a friend, or your Love, or someone.

You will need 5-6 packs of Gesso sold at a pharmacy, its really cheap ( used for casts)
some water, cut the strips in half, also some olive oil or vaseline.
E-mail me for more info.

We did that for our first and this one. I highly recommend that you do the boobs as well. I didn't with the first and think it looks so much better otherwise!

I did one with my first, and it sits in the closet. I just never got around to completing it (painting and whatnot.) I'm skipping it this time around because I really don't need TWO unfinished belly cast projects. But I'm glad I did it, because every time I see it I say "yep, I really was huge! I'm a skinny minny now!" and really, who doesn't need that sort of validation?

i think we're going to do one tonight! i got some quick drying plaster bandages at a medical supply store. i don't know if it need other stuff to smooth it out, i just plan on making the cast and when the baby comes to put her foot prints on it where she kicks me the most. i'm excited!
