Meet Katie and Ryan who are featured here today for agreeing to document the Belly mold to prop crazy idea I had..  Thank you Katie

The casting process at home Very dusty process and Katie (mom) suggests doing this process in the shower where the dust is contained and can easily be rinsed away

 

The cast just after removal is set to dry for 24 hours

 

Meanwhile at my house my girls are helping me make the fluff for inside the belly mold. This is a tedious task of taking yarn apart and then pulling it apart to make “fluff”

 

 

 

Finally the newborn shoot day has arrived and I get to use a belly mold. I have never done this before but it turned out to be the perfect prop for baby Nathan. Here is a cell upload of me getting the final shot and Mommy loving how cute her baby boy looks in her very own plaster belly mold from just a 8 days earlier. Nathan seemed comfortable and happy to be resting back in Momma’s belly..
