Why should I make a belly cast?
The belly cast is made so that the mom and baby will enjoy having a 3 dimensional view of mom’s transformation as she was expecting her new bundle of joy. Photographs only capture a flat 2 dimensional image.
How difficult is it to do a belly cast?
The process is fun and easy. This can be a joint project with your husband, family, or friends. The wet plaster strips are applied to the mom ’s pregnant form. There is no need for messy mixing. After about45 minutes, the cast is then removed from the torso. Once the cast is removed and has hardened, it can be left as is, decorated at home, or sent to us so that it may be transformed into a fiberglass work-of-art
If I send you my cast to be converted to fiberglass, can I still decorate it myself?
You have the option of collaborating with a design team specialist about how you would like to have your sculpture decorated for completion or having the fiberglass sculpture sent back to you for you to complete the decorating portion of the project at home.
What is the significance of having my belly cast turned into fiberglass?
We offer a product that has been researched and tested, and we have found this method of casting gives the sculpture longevity. It is flexible, durable, and we stand behind our product 100%. If for whatever reason you are not satisfied with your fiberglass mold, Original Belly Works will refund your money. Once we fiberglass your plaster cast, you will have an Original Belly Work Sculpture. We place an Original Belly Work medallion on the inside of the sculpture. A keepsake pouch is included in every sculpture, so that you too, like many celebrities will have an Original Belly Work sculpture. Each fiberglass sculpture that we make is indeed an original. It is original in either its structure or design.
How is the fiberglass sculpture a time capsule?
Original Belly Works has placed a pocket in the back of each one of our sculptures. A keepsake pouch is placed there so mother-to-be can have a special place to insert written declarations of hopes, desires and aspirations for her unborn baby. Most mothers write a love letter from mom to baby. The pouch may be used at your discretion.

How do i send my plaster kit back to you for fiberglassing and design?
There is MINIMAL packaging required. We encourage our customers to bubble wrap the plaster casting and place it in a box (it doesn't have to be huge) and add shipping 'Popcorn' for added protection. Your belly will arrive safely if it is bubble wrapped and some added protection is used inside the box to prevent sliding. Please make sure you included in your package your belly sketch, and mail to the following: Original Belly Works, 1051 Heathchase Drive, Studio 100, Suwanee GA 30024
