Here's DH modelling his handiwork: <a href="http://kgspottery.com/belly/new/belly_cast_adl.jpg" target="_blank">http://kgspottery.com/belly/new/belly_cast_adl.jpg</a><br><br>
We had intended to hang this over the piano, surrounded by birth/baby pics. However. After the finished product dried, it became increasingly obvious this was far more graphic than I had imagined. Holy nipples! It will be hanging over our bed instead.<br><br>
Anyone else have belly cast photos to share?

ours is done, but i want to sand and gesso and paint it. it's not nearly as lovely as yours. my DH was not 100% sure how to do it so that it got the shape and detail.

Looks really good!<br><br><br>
I wanted to share a cool idea for after the baby is born...<br><br>
DD always seemed to kick in the same spot so we added baby foot prints to the inside in that same place. I can't believe her feet were ever that small.

Ohmygosh, you're on #7 but haven't done one yet? Oooh, ooh, hurry up and get it done with this one! It was fun. I recommend taking off your shoes, though. I didn't realize how much drippage there would be. My fancy running shoes are now plaster running shoes. Also, I held my arms above my head the whole time. Gave me a centimeter or so of less sag.<br><br>
I don't plan to paint it at all; I like the in-the-raw look. Am hoping it will age to some sort of yellowish maybe?<br><br>
Thanks, mamas. I've passed on your compliments to DH. Who responded, "You put a picture of me up there? My face? Let me see it ... Ohmygawd, I look like a goler!" (I have no idea what a goler is, but it's apparently not a compliment.)
