ProudBody review and giveaway


 One of the most popular ways of imprinting the memory of your baby belly is by casting it at the end of 8 months or at the start of your 9th month. I have seen tons of pictures of beautiful bellies painted with gorgeous artwork and hung up for everyone to ooohhhh and ahhhh over.  While another fun thing to do with your spouse or children is to have them paint on your belly especially during the holidays or even as a gender announcement! Any belly would look cute sporting an Easter egg, Jack O' Lantern, turkey, or Christmas tree. It is an everlasting memory between you and the special people around you.

With ProudBody belly cast kits you are able to capture that special moment. It is a plaster cast so you don't have to worry about having a huge mess to deal with afterwards and it takes as little as 30 minutes!

The first item I was sent was the deluxe belly casting kit and comes with everything you need. The materials  are safe and non toxic. I am saving this for the end of November/beginning of December, so I can capture my last month and how big I had actually gotten.

                                   Included in the package you get:

 5 rolls of premium-quality belly casting material (each roll is 4" wide x 5 yards long = 25 yards of length!)
 All-natural belly casting lubricant
 Plastic drop cloth
4 Nitrile (non-latex) gloves
 Sanding screen
 Step-by-Step Instructions
 Belly cast finishing sealant (gesso) to smooth and seal your cast and prepare it for painting
 Sponge brush to apply the sealant
 Belly Cast Smoother (plaster casting powder) to smooth your cast
 Casting & Decorating Ideas sheet with hundreds of decorating ideas 
The second item I received was the bold decorating kit. My husband is a tattoo artist and he was talking about casting my belly, decorating it, and hanging it up in his booth as art, so when I asked him what colors he would like he picked bold because he can make the vibrant colors pop off the white cast. There are three different decorating kits to pick from including the bold, pastel, and vintage. With the vintage you are able to turn your cast into a beautiful bronze/antique look. If you have trouble deciding you can purchase a double pack with two different kits or a pack with all three! 
                        Included in the decorating kit: 

• 8 jars permanent acrylic paint, 1 fl. oz. each. (red, blue, green, yellow, purple, orange, white & black)
• One 2-inch wide foam paint brush
• One 1-inch wide foam paint brush
• Two small detail bristle paint brushes
• Colorful Instruction Sheet & Decorating Ideas


The last item I received was the belly painting kit for my boys. I asked them when they wanted to use the kit and Cain wanted to save it for Halloween so he could paint my belly like a pumpkin. The paints are easy to apply as well as remove, so there is no worry about going around for weeks with a giant "pumpkin!" If you have any left over paint then don't throw it out as you can use it for painting others as well. I can already see my boys painting each other looking like a piece of splatter art! The painting kit is FDA approved, safe and non-toxic. They also carry a henna kit and tummy tattoos. 

                       Included in the belly painting kit: 

  • 8-color professional FDA approved, water-based make-up palette (black, white, red, blue, orange, pink, yellow & green) Belly Painting Brush
  •  Belly Painting Sponge  
  • Painting Tips & Design Ideas  
  • 54m 9 m,+6 m6+Sheet of colorful temporary tattoos
