So What Is The Process of Making Baby Hand Print Keepsakes and Baby Hand Print Ornaments?
The process begins as soon as you place your order through our shop. You will be emailed a link containing information for filling out our online order form. Then, a molding kit will be sent to you, which includes the molding material, a small rolling pin, step-by-step instructions, as well as other materials that will assist you in making the perfect print. A pre-paid, pre-addressed envelope is also included in the kit, so when you are finished with your print you can send it right back to us!
As soon as we receive your mold, we will check the order form you have previously filled out online. Your custom product will soon be in the works! We use non-toxic white clay in all of our creations. Based on your options you chose on your order form, your product will be hand-crafted, paying close attention to the details of your little one’s hand or foot (or paw!). The clay will then be left to air dry for a week or more, depending on the temperature and humidity in the studio. Then, an initial firing in our ceramic kiln will harden the clay and turn it into a ceramic piece. Next, based on the color options you chose, ceramic glaze will be applied and fired in the kiln one last time. The final finishing touches are added, and the product is carefully packed up and sent back to you, ready to display for a lifetime of memories.
Who Is Behind These Baby Hand Print Keepsakes and Baby Hand Print Ornaments?
I have been an artist all of my life. I really enjoy making handprint items from clay because it allows me to combine my two passions, art and working with children. I graduated from Western Michigan University in 2005 with a degree in Art Education. I also have a Masters Degree from Wayne State University. I have taught art to elementary students for seven years now. Art gives children the opportunity to express themselves. I love watching what each one of my students create. In addition to working with clay, I enjoy drawing, watercolor painting, and interior design.
