Childrens hand and foot impressions are really easy to do, you can either cast one at home using homemade play dough Click on the link in green for the best play dough recipe ever: External link opens in new tab or windowThe Best Play dough recipe 

Why is this the best homemade playdough recipe?

  • It is SUPER soft and squishy, but doesn’t stick
  • The play dough lasts for months in a zip top bag (or when you have cast it up, on a plate with cling film around it, ready for you to bring along to have a foot/hand cast created in glass.
  • It is inexpensive to make
  • It makes enough for 4-6 kids too, if you want to make some up just to play with too!

Once we have your play dough mould, whether it is cast at home by you, or cast in our studio by us, the process afterwards is the same. We make another cast from your play dough, into a damp casting sand, which is then dried slowly for around one week, until rigid and then we pour the molten glass into it. The glass pours into the sand-cast and sets into a pool of molten glass, the foot impression starts to shine through and become more rigid. At this stage it is over 1100 degrees Celcius! (a similar temperature as molten lava!) It takes around 72 hours to anneal the glass to ensure that it is cooled, de-stressed and safe to handle, sandblasted and ready to present. A message of your choice can be hand engraved on to it and then it is gift wrapped. This whole process takes around two weeks (It may take longer at our busier times).
