A Hand Impression from self-hardening Clay decorated as Father Christmas
Make a hand impression from self-hardening clay and decorate it as Father Christmas with craft paint and googly eyes. Make a hole and thread a piece of cotton cord through the hole for hanging.
How to do it
Roll out self-hardening clay thinly. Push your hand into the wet clay to make an impression. Cut around the print with a modelling tool and remove the excess clay. Make a hole with a straw if you want to use it as a hanging decoration. Leave to dry completely before the next step.
Paint the dry figure with Plus Color craft paint as illustrated in the picture.
Dip your thumb in white paint and leave a finger print at the end of Father Christmas's hat.
Thread a piece of cotton cord for hanging through the hole and finish with a knot.
