NOTE: You will be sent some special two-part silicon moulding putty before the workshop, with full instructions on how to take the fingerprint you wish to capture in silver clay, before you arrive for the workshop.
What will I learn?
You will learn how to;
make a fingerprint mould and reverse it,
roll and cut silver clay using cutters
Cut a hole to add a jump ring
Sand and finish
Polish and finishing including highlighting the detail of the fingerprints
There will be additional techniques on this workshop that you can apply to your designs if you wish, including stone setting and using letters and numbers.
By the time you leave you will have the skills to start making and firing your own designs at home.
PLEASE NOTE: fingerprints of children year 1 year of age have not developed the line definition. You can still capture little one’s fingers but there will be less detail, so it is sometimes best to wait until they are a little older.
NOTE: The cost of the workshop includes all the items you need to make one pendant/keyring and mould putty to capture a single fingerprint. If you wish to capture additional fingerprints then we can make up to 3 pendants/keyrings in one class, but each additional pendant will cost an extra £25 in basic material costs.
Silver clay kits, additional silver clay, other equipment and findings can be purchased to take home.
