Feet Petite

A few weeks ago, some of our lovely, creative friends offered to make some casts of our daughter’s feet using alginate gel. The alginate is a powder that forms a gel when mixed with water, and the gel quickly sets to form a flexible mould which can be used to make plaster of paris casts.

We are delighted with the results, we think they are much better than the impression kits that you can buy. I love the way they have captured the wrinkles on the soles of her feet and the way she curled her feet up in the gel.
