Are you looking to give a gift that’s truly unique? Do you know someone that’s daft on their doggy? Would you like a gift that captures a moment, memory or milestone and lets you touch, hold & remember a memory for a lifetime?
Dog Paw casting is a fantastic way to capture a moment with your favourite furry family! Dogs play such an important role in our lives and pet owners adore their four-legged friends. You will be gifting a fun – and not forgetting an impressively memorable – experience, capturing a paw or a hand and paw casting gift experience.
Paw casting is done here at the studio. I do not sell kits for dog paw castings & I would never recommend attempting to cast an animal paw without prior experience. It’s just not fair to do that to your pet.
My studio is based in Pitcairn, Glenrothes, where we are surrounded by woodland walks directly behind the studio. Perfect for before or after your casting experience.
What can be created and how much does this cost?
- Pet paw cast & mounted on a marble base with name plaque £90
- One hand holding a dog paw cast together – from £195 (if the human wants to wear jewellery that’s extra)
- Two hands holding a dog paw – from £345 (done in 2 separate bookings)
All 3 options can be finished in either a silver or bronze effect finish (decided at the appointment). Including jewellery is an additional £20 per ornate ring included.
**NOT ALL DOGS CAN CREATE LIFECASTS. PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE UNTIL FIRST KNOWING THE SUITABILITY. Get in touch first please**
This downloadable paw-cast gift experience is AVAILABLE INSTANTLY, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
You also have 2 different gifting options –

Birthdays, Celebrations, Milestones, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day…
(Could also be a complete lifesaver if you maybe forgot to buy that important gift & time is now of the essence! No need to panic – we’ve got it covered!!)
The Dog Casting Gift Experience will take place at the Impressive Memories Lifecasting Studio in Pitcairn, Glenrothes in Fife. KY7 6ET. Within easy travelling distance from all over Fife, Dundee, Perth, Edinburgh and the Lothians. The studio is super dog friendly and also surrounded by woodland walks to enjoy after the casting.
The person who gifts a dog paw casting experience is someone who understands the bond between a dog and its owner. Someone that recognises the importance of the connections within everyone in the family – not just humans. They like to give unique, fun and memorable gifts that will be talked about for years to come.
Mass-produced ‘off-the-shelf’ gifts just aren’t Impressive enough for you – you’d much rather give a fun experience, with a memorable and life long memento to touch, hold and treasure. You’d like to be remembered for gifting a bespoke present that lasts a lifetime.
Who is the ideal recipient to Gift a Hand Cast Experience to?
The ideal recipient for a paw cast gift experience would be anyone that’s doggy daft and adores their doting dog.
A paw cast is for people who value the four legged members of the family they share in their life. They can appreciate the beauty of a paw cast as it has captured an emotion and made it a tangible memory they are proud to display – showing the world what’s important to them.
Why does every dog owners home need a paw cast?
A paw cast is more than just a beautiful ornament to display in your home. It is a work of art inspired by you! Seeing your paw cast should evoke memories unique to those who it captures, and spark memories for all those that recognise those who have created it. Our dogs paws are so unique and once your work of art is on display you are showing the world – and your visitors – that you are proud of those paws you share in your life.
Dogs don’t get to stay for long. But they leave their pawprints on our hearts forever.

Who am I?
*waves* Hi, I’m Jen. Everything you see online and offline at Impressive Memories is created by moi! All the jewellery, products, lifecasts, website, catalogs, leaflets…all me! (control freak)
I started lifecasting in 2003 when I had my daughter, and began to build my first business ‘Impressive Babies’. I left my music teaching career to run my business full time in 2013 and ‘Impressive Memories’ has grown and flourished, as has my daughter, since.
I am passionate about capturing an emotion or memory and creating it into a tangible work of art that you can touch, hold and feel for a lifetime. I believe in using the very highest standard of raw materials, alongside consistently developing my own skills to an ever-rising level. A perfectionist in detail (and my harshest critic) with the ethos that any item created at Impressive Memories is honouring your most Impressive Memory.
I am on a mission to make YOUR memories tangibly impressive!
- What is the cast made from? A high density, top quality stone powder.
- How long does it take to make the paw cast? You only need to be in the casting material for approx 5 mins. It will take approx 5-12 weeks (depending on the cast chosen) to complete your work of art.
- Why does it take so long? Due to the fine and highly dense construction it takes a long time for the cast to dry naturally. To speed it up would have a detrimental effect on your cast in the long run…it would be fine for a few years but then it would begin to deteriorate and could even disintegrate.
- I’ve seen a cheaper option elsewhere – why should I come to Impressive Memories? It’s important that you choose a lifecaster that you know, like and trust to create your paw cast. It’s always a good idea to explore all your options. A cheaper product might be created using cheap materials or a cheap moulding compound, maybe it’s been artificially dried and compromised for a quick turnaround, it might not have been finished to the high standard I work to (look for lumps and bumps and a poor finish ) It’s also worth checking the time a lifecaster has been working and selling their work to the public. Some issues don’t rear their ugly head for 5 years+ Mould, for example, takes a long time to appear and destroy your casting. Chances are that the person who cut corners and sold you a damp cast has moved on to another ‘business venture’ and won’t care or know how to rectify your issue.
- Should I buy a kit and do it myself? This depends on the end goal you want to achieve. A kit can be good fun but the result is uncertain and not guaranteed. You won’t have the skills, ability, machinery, techniques or knowledge to create to the standard of an experienced life caster, and if you want to have fun and waste ££ then have a bash. Buying a camera won’t make you a photographer, owning a screwdriver doesn’t make you a joiner, dancing in your bedroom singing into a hairbrush won’t make you a pop star…(sorry to shatter your dreams). If you want to have fun and possibly end up with a dodgy looking cast that looks great inside a dark cupboard – then buy a kit. If you want a high-quality work of art that you’re proud of for decades to come – you’re in the right place. If you know how to salvage your dog’s leg/paw fur when it goes horribly wrong – carry on.
- What if I give this as a gift and they don’t want it? Don’t panic. If the recipient would rather choose a different casting or jewellery or ceramics, that’s no problem at all. They can transfer their voucher monetary value to any item at Impressive Memories.
- Can I wear jewellery? Yes, rings can be worn. Wedding bands are inclusive of a standard casting but to include ornate rings with stone settings there’s a small additional cost. Jewellery can make your cast even more unique and recognisable as being YOUR hands. If you’ve been gifted a casting without jewellery you are welcome to upgrade your cast and include them yourself for just £20 per ring.
