Both Outprints and Imprints are taken at our Kenilworth studio so please get in touch to book an appointment if you would like to bring your child/children along to have these special prints taken.
Imprints are hand and/or footprints taken into clay. They are left to carefully and slowly dry before a first 'bisque firing' in the kiln. Once fired, they are painted in a coloured underglaze of your choice with names and ages added before a second firing. Imprints are then framed in your choice of a white, black or oak effect frame.
Outprints are hand and/or footprints taken into salt dough before casting in plaster. They are also left to carefully and slowly dry out to prevent cracking. Once fully dry, the Outprints are painted with a black or white acrylic paint and rubbed with either a metalic guilding wax or a coloured chalk to pick out the creases and marking of the prints. Imprints are then framed in your choice of a white, black or oak effect frame.
Both Outprints and Imprints take approximately 4-5 weeks to complete.
Sibling, family and dog Imprints and Outprints can be also created - please do get in touch if this is something you are interested in and we can give you an accurate quote for the prints and framing.
