A face casting is one of the most enigmatic ways of capturing a person’s expressions. It is possible to cast a small section of the face, such as chin and lips, the entire face, or even from the collarbone, all the way to behind the ears. It is one of the more complex casts to make, so we guide you through every step of the process beforehand, and make sure you are totally comfortable throughout.
Face Cast FAQs
How will I breathe?
When we create the casting, we place a moulding jelly on your face, being careful to keep your nostrils clear the whole time. Your mouth will usually be covered, so you will need to breathe through your nose. If you have a cold on the day, please let us know, as it will make a face casting impossible!
Do you put straws in the nose?
Apart from being more comfortable without straws- they distort the shape of the nose and leave you with an unnatural looking casting. We create our face castings without straws.
How long does it take?
A face casting will only take around 20 minutes to complete. Our previous customers have said the time flies by. We talk to you throughout the casting, so you know exactly what’s happening. It goes even faster when we put on some music of your choice.
Will I be comfortable?
We understand that having a face casting made is an unusual experience. Your eyes will be closed, and you will be breathing through your nose.
