This is a $5,000 per week home business for stay at home mums or anyone with a few hours of spare time every week. Too good to be true? believe me, this is not a scam.
It is fairly easy to do something like this:
Parents and grand-parents are keen to preserve the tiny hands and feet of their new born. This is so incredibly cute and will not stay that way very long...
You can sell these plaster castings for $150. Depending where you live and how well you advertise you could easily make 10 per week, without spending much time at all. A nice little side income for stay at home mums with an artistic inclination.
$1,500 per week is good, $5,000 is better. You may not find 30 babies to cast every week, and then it becomes too much hard workk. But If you made these 10 in bronze instead of plaster, you could charge $500 each instead of $150... a much better return for not much more work....
This is how I would go about it:
You open a Google account and get a Gmail email address. This is free. Then you open a Google Blogger account and start creating your web site. This is also free. You'll quickly get the hang of it.
There are two ways to expand:
a) start offering pregnancy castings as well as baby's hands and feet. However this is a much larger enterprise requiring more tools, mor material, more space, perhaps the help of an assistant. Not imposiible of course but do you really want to work hard?
2-You then pour molten wax inside the mold instead of plaster. ( 5 minutes. )
3-You then attach a wax tube and a wax cup at the base of the wax hand or foot ( 5 minutes)
4-The wax tube and wax cup have been previously made. You can mak 10 of each in one hour.
1- try it yourself. Find info on the internet, buy stuff, and go for it... I strongly recommend that you do not do that. This is sure to lead you to great frustrations, wasted materials and loss of time and money.
This is a no nonsense instructions manual that will have you make a small object in bronze in a few days and to high degree of quality. No previous experience is necessary and the tools and equipment needed are easy to find. Basically, anyone with a bit of space such as a backyard and a carport can do this at home.
