    Anyone fancied doing this? I'd never even heard of it or thought of it, I came across it on ebay! So that's right I bought myself a kit, came within a couple of days and me and OH did the task yesterday!! It was fun, and very messy, it is now drying (takes 48 hours to dry completley). It was so funny tho as it was drying (and still on me) LO decided it would be fun to kick it off, so we were fighting, ha with me trying to hold it on lol. It is so strange to see a cast of what your body looks like, its not at all like looking in the mirror, very strange, I really had no idea I looked like that lol! Nice to look back on in the future! x Wana see the pics lol, here we go - eeeek!

    You could always do just bely and not boobs????

    I might be cheap and go the craft shop/pharmacy and just buy some plaster of paris, i already have tonnes of vaseline n what not. Cant see there being much more involved???

    I wanna get one of these! i've got it on my baby shower list. if u google them theres sites with loads of cool pictures of painted ones and some pics with new born babies curled up alseep in them! i love them. i was thinking of sticking some scan pics (coz i've got a disk of them) to mine when i've made it and turning it into a funky sort of photo frame!

    Also would recomend painting belly with facepaints! thats v fun too!

    It only cost me about £6 off ebay, but its just those bandage things they use at hospital to do pots and stuff, and some vaseline and a large sheet to cover the floor and your pretty much there lol! So yeah get yourself down the craft shop and do it! I'd highly recommend it, I wasn't gonna do my boobs but OH encouraged me to! lol.
