Great project and a great tutorial! I do have a question: So, you did not let the air-dry clay dry before casting?
I don't have kids, but I might consider doing paw prints. However, the real reason I clicked through was this looked like a project with LOTS of Halloween decoration potential. Mwahahahaaaaaaa!
nope, pour on the plaster while the clay is wet. admittedly i havnt tried letting it dry first
but i dont think it would peel off as easily
plus this way you can reuse the clay..depending how quick to get back to it once the plaster is dry.
animals with hairy paws dont work (i tried one of my house rabbits...all you get is a hairy mark and claw prints) dogs, cats, rats anything with hairless pads or paws works though
oh yes!...dolls would work rather well for halloween
Thanks for the tips! I've made paw prints in clay of the dogs with some luck, but having a convex version is really appealing.
For Halloween I'm thinking of adult sized and perhaps monster-ized hands and feet looking like they are pushing through walls and the like. Maybe find a way to do the side of a face. I go pretty far out with my Halloween!
