Post-mortem cast (after death cast)

I was hired by a Bay Area client to go to Los Angles to do a post mortem (after death) hand and face cast of her recently deceased relative. Post mortem casts are technically difficult, but are often the most meaningful and beautiful casts I do.

This is the finished hand cast. It’s a dusted bronzed finish with a bonded bronze resin core.

This beautiful little girl did a great gesture for this casting. Part of the fun is that until we “demold” the casting from the alginate jell nobody know what it will look like.

During the casting it’s best for the kid’s parent or other “comfort person” to hold them while I put the foot or hand in the alginate molding material. It only takes a few minutes and usually they are comfortable when the alginate jells.
