I spent the day making a belly cast of my friend’s pregnant bump! I brushed up on my casting skills by watching a bunch of video tutorials before starting and I leaned back on my past experiences of casting. It was all quite exciting, remembering how important the release agent is. We decided on just the belly, no hands or boobs, as my intention is to make a porcelain belly bowl from the cast. The mum-to-be, will later on, take the actual cast back to decorate it, perhaps add crystals to the inside of it and have it as a piece of art.

Below are photos of each step of the process on how the bowl is being made:
