Puppy Paws Pictures
« on: June 23, 2009, 13:53:24 PM »
Heard about these today - they're a version of the baby hand/foot prints. These are in non-bake clay. I shall investigate further because I think they would be great to make and sell. Maybe some of our creative types could suggest how they could be finished off?   :thinkin:

I've just spoken to Jo & we can use pretty much anything, she suggested water colour paint, we can "glaze" them using PVA glue ( kiddies glue) diluted with water, there's pottery tomorrow night so she'll show me the glue then, sounds fairly easy - think the hardest part will be actually getting the dogs co-operation in getting the paw print  :wave:

Sounds good, now a cat would just walk across any surface.. not sure about a puppy though...

p.s Seran has got a lovely item for the auction that is on a similar theme.......
