Welcome to Tiny Impressions, my name is Althea a mother of two daughters and I specialise in creating 3D lifecasting sculptures. My bespoke sculptures are a beautiful way to help you Cherish Every Milestone.
I have always had an interest in Lifecasting and after the birth of my second child, I decided to pursue my passion. I have done extensive training in Lifecasting and have practiced my craft till it was perfected.I gave up a successful career in Dental Sales and my business Tiny Impressions was born.
I am proud to be only one of two business in the Republic of Ireland to be members of the Association of lifecasters International and I continue to learn and love my craft every day.
All my work are unique pieces and they make a once in a lifetime bespoke keepsakes. You can choose to capture your baby’s hands and feet to remember how small they once were or a beautiful hand holding cast, the possibilities are endless.
I work on every Lifecast as if it was my own and only use the highest quality products. I am passionate about supporting local business so all my frames, paint and engravings are all sourced local, supporting other small business like mine.
I offer a complete mobile Lifecasting service from the comfort of your own home covering Dublin & Kildare taking the hassle out of traveling for you, as a mam I know the less travel the better with young children and this makes It an enjoyable experience for all involved especially as children love being in there own environment where they feel safest. I currently take impressions on Friday mornings & Saturday’s. Once I have taken impressions I will work on finishing your precious keepsake.
I keep all my clients informed every step of the progress and send pictures at every stage to make sure you love the finished sculpture as everyone’s taste is different so everything down to the final position of the casts when framing is chosen by my clients. This attention to detail is why I have a 5 Star Genuine rating on Facebook.
The impressions are cast using a stone material that is very durable; they are then sanded after a drying process of a few weeks, hand painted & waxed in the colour of your choice, mounted in the frame of your choice and hand delivered back by myself.
3D castings are the perfect special unique gift for a newborn Baby, Christening, Mother’s day, Father’s day, Godparents and Grandparents gift, celebrating a new sibling birth.
Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about me and my business. I look forward to helping you Cherish Every Milestone.
