Touch-up, repair & refinement of the self-made plaster cast of the baby bump
" I preserve special moments in life and make emotions tangible "
"I'm often asked if it's possible to "save" and beautify a self-made plaster cast of the baby's belly. Definitely, YES! Of course it's possible. The only difference between the plaster casts is that since 2007 I've been almost immortalize plaster casts of the baby bump every day, I know exactly what I have to pay attention to so that the plaster cast is formed more cleanly than laypeople might do. The plaster cast is the blank. The skeleton, so to speak. The decisive factor for a beautiful result is always the basis, what you can build on. So if you pay attention right from the start to high-quality materials / plaster bandages and a good position for taking an impression of the baby bump (standing up), then the end result will be great. I often also get a lot of broken or badly unsuccessful plaster casts, which ones are more time-consuming for us in the revision.My goal is always to get the best out of what I receive as a template!And that's what I do Very conscientious, with a lot of perseverance and attention to detail.
