Here's what you'll need:
wax paper-covered clipboard (the wax paper prevents staining)
cookie cutter (it must be large enough to go around your pet's paw print)
sculpting tool with a very pointed edge
modge podge (optional)
Here's what you do:
To form the paw print your pet's toenails must be recently trimmed or else the toenails will appear in the clay. We also trimmed Tansy's hair around her feet so there would not be hair prints in the clay.
After the clay has baked you can apply high-gloss modge podge for a shiny finish. I haven't decided if I want to do that yet or not.
I also placed a small hole in the clay to thread ribbon through so we can hang her paw print.
This simple craft is a wonderful way to preserve the memory of your beloved pet.
