Sculptural Hand Dish

Baby Hands

With some leftover clay from Baby C's party and an amazing project courtesy of A Beautiful Mess http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2014/03/make-your-own-sculptural-hand-dish.html
we got to preserving these lovely little baby hands belonging to my children.
I love all bits of my children, but I admire their little hands constantly!
What potential lies in those hands.

O's Handprint

O will stay put for a quick trace and the clay was so soft, a toothpick easily made the mark, as well as imprinted the fingers.

Toothpick

We used the inside of a bowl to mold a gentle curve of the hand.


Baby C however, does not stay put for hand-tracing.
We had to improvise....
...first a playdough imprint...


...then careful cutting and tracing.
