I gotta call this morning about a baby hand print ….actually I really don’t do that any more since I began selling my sculpture wholesale…but babies you know have always had a soft spot in me…
years ago I had clay school and I posted a sign in the window that I did baby hand prints…Mothers had told me stories of getting the clay that dries on it’s own and how they finally get the kids in the mood to participate and by the time the kid got there the clay was hard!
I’ll have a couple of slabs of clay ready, cut in a tile shape, I have a few little stamp letters so we can name the baby and maybe put the date or whatever the parent wants. You have to really press the baby’s hand down into the clay and usually the baby gets pretty angry at having their hand smashed in clay…I let the parents handle that part!
one time I thought it would be neat to have my dog prints too….every body got mad at me for smashing their paw and would speak to me the rest of the day!!!!
