I also do three-dimensional work on belly casts!  A belly cast is a great way to celebrate your growing, changing shape during pregnancy.  I have the following packages for any budget:

  1. C Make the Cast ($100):  I will come by with all the necessary supplies to help you create the cast.  I can then leave it with you to do what you’d like or proceed below.
  2. Cast Prep ($150):  This includes reinforcing sanding, smoothing, and gesso’ing the cast to prepare it to be decorated.  Instead of using plaster to smooth like most kits include, I use acrylic modeling medium, which is a lot tougher and won’t crack or crumble like plaster will.
  3. All-Over Color ($50): I will paint your cast all over with a color you specify.
  4. All-Over Color Plus Simple Design ($100-400): I will paint the cast like above and decorate it with a simple decoration (such as a henna-like design) or other simple image of your choice
  5. All-Over Color Plus a Mural ($600-unlimited): The sky’s the limit!  Tell me your vision for your cast and I will quote you how much it will cost.  I will create a one-of-a-kind piece of art for you incorporating whatever subject matter you are drawn to!  As a general rule I charge $50/hour for mural work.

I can do something for every budget!  Contact me if you have an unfinished cast you’d like me to decorate.

Here are some examples of my work:

  1. OH MY goodness! you have created the most beautifuly inspirational belly cast!!! it is no wonder my belly cast has been lying cold and white for over 3 years…. i think i have been waiting for you!

  2. I have a blank cast that I would love to have painted with a mandala. It has been in storage for many years. I will take it out and connect with you. love this work that you have done. beautiful!!

    • I’ve had people in the US ship me casts before, I’m not sure if it would be cost-prohibitive to ship from Canada, but if you’re willing I’m willing! The only thing is right now I have a very long list of commissions I’m trying to work through. If you’re interested in getting on the list I’d be happy to add you, please email me at amy@birthingbody.org

  3. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!

    • This is a free one, the only thing I’ll pay for is a domain name. I’d say make an outline first, a skeleton of pages in the order you want them, and then fill in the text and photos. It takes a little bit to get the hang of but is really pretty easy 🙂 good luck!
