A quick google search yielded me a lot of results for belly cast kits (search "belly cast kit"). I think a kit is the route I would take, if I were to do one. I remember seeing kits on ebay, as well.

Here is a link with directions that are pretty much how I made a belly cast with dd: http://pregnancyandbaby.com/pregnanc...y-cast-467.htm

I used Rigid Wrap for the plaster material...I found it at a local craft supply store. I found Rigid Wrap very easy to use and will use it again to make a cast with this currently growing belly.

A kit may be easy...but the truth is that I found making one w/o a kit was also very easy (also cheaper)...whatever works best for you...

I wish you luck...they certainly are beautiful...I love looking at the one I made with dd a few years ago

we used rigid wrap and LOTS of petroleum jelly anywhere sensitive (i.e. nipples and pubic hair). it turned out beautifully, and was a lot cheaper than the "kits".
