Volume print of the palms and heels

Passion for young parents to keep objects related to their children as old as the world. Probably, each of us, as an adult, mom showed a tiny bunch of hair left over from the first haircut, or indistinct scribbles - a masterpiece painted by a beloved child. Life does not stand still, progressive manufacturers of children's goods offer all new inventions to capture the maturing of the crumbs. Such an innovation is a set for fingerprints and heels of toddlers, but there is such entertainment of considerable money. The master class offers a much less expensive option - to make a panel with your own hands.
In order for the creation process to take as little time as possible, it is recommended to prepare all the materials in advance.
prepare all materials

For the dough will need:
- flour - 1.5 tbsp.
- salt of fine grinding "Extra" - 1 tbsp.
- vegetable oil - 2 tsp.
- water - 1/3 Art.
Also prepare a deep plate, a tablespoon, a cutting board, to roll out the dough and foil for baking.
To decorate the finished panel we take:
- paints - preferably acrylic, so that the finished product can be touched. Gouache remains on hand, and watercolor has a weak covering ability;
- brushes - let one brush be wide, for priming and applying a background coating. The second is narrow, for the ornament.
The flight of fantasy in the design is not limited by anything, it can be decorated with glitter glue or nail polish, rhinestones, shells, etc.
Let's start mixing the dough.
The first stage - pour salt in a dish with flour. Please note that the salt is better to use it is fine, with a large product will be rough.

Next, stir the salt and flour into a homogeneous mass. So it will be easier to knead the finished dough.

Then, in the flour and salt, make a deepening, and gradually pour warm water into it, in which are diluted 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil. Dough with butter is more pleasant to knead, so it's better to grasp, and the water needs warm, so that the oil dissolves better.

After kneading elastic (this is important) dough in a dish, lay it on a cutting board, knead it well, roll it into a thick sausage, and divide it into two equal parts.

Each part once again mash.The thickness of one figure should be 1.5 - 2 cm.

We put both pieces of dough on the foil, so that they do not stick together in the process, we press the baby’s hand and heel in turn. Shape the edges need to be given immediately before baking.

After these funny manipulations, carefully transfer the foil from the panel to the oven. It is important that the dough is not cracked, not burnt, and baked through. Choose the average temperature of the oven - better to bake longer, but better. We handle rough edges with a regular nail file (in the photo, the sides of the palm are polished, but the feet are not).
decorating

The most interesting part is decorating. With a large brush we remove the grinding dust, priming the workpiece with white acrylic. Do not overdo it, because there will be more layers of paint to avoid cracks.
casts are dried

Primed molds are dried, and made out at will.
