View Full Version : We just made handprints with Scupley clay!

One of the small gifts for the grandparents this year is Sara's little handprint. We used 2 little packages of the colored sculpey clay rolled it to about 3/8 of an inch thick and stuck her hand in it (hard to get enough pressure for a really good print, but we tried). Then we used a circle shaped cookie-cutter with scalloped edges and cut the print out, so the edges look nice and baked. Voila! It took all of 10 minutes of pre-cooking, then 15 minutes cooking and about 30 minutes cooling. Hurrah!

Cool Joey! I am going to copy you and try it too.

You are so crafty. :)

GREAT idea. Where did you get the clay?

Michael's probably has it - we're headed there this morning!

We bought ours at Hobby Lobby, but Michael's would have it too. The colored clays come in small packages... we needed 2 packs for one print. It was so easy. Lizajane was the one who had the original idea... She also suggested putting the print into a shadow box to give it a "finished" look. Have fun.
