Has anyone done or doing a belly cast. I would like to this time around, just wondering what to buy or what website I can order from. I figured dh and the kids can do it in Aug.

I bought three rolls, as I recall, and we used them all. After it was dry, I used plaster of paris on top to harden it up even more. DH did the casting for me. He covered the shoulders, chest, and belly. I do reccommend including the shoulders because it gives you something to hang it from. I used a wide piece of ribbon.
Have fun! I can't wait to do one this summer.
