Description

Due to high volume all order will take APPROXIMATELY 10 weeks from time I receive molds back.
(13 months - 24 months ) Adorable baby footprint ornament of your child's foot and made into a reindeer may adorn your Christmas tree this year and all the yrs. to come. You may still order so you will capture prints before they continue to grow and have for all the Holidays to come. First to create and offer this reindeer footprint, I take my time to detail and give attention to my work. Any mother would adore a cherished Christmas ornament keepsake like this one of their child. Precious Christmas Gift for Grandparents and family. "personalize baby gift", "baby mold, Christmas ornament kit. Pictured print is in process of glaze painting and not yet glaze fired. Colors may appear different after firing.

How the personalize baby gift, "baby mold, Christmas ornament kit
ceramic footprint mold kit is created

1. Ceramic clay is rolled and hand built and cut out to size

2. Drying time can vary from 5-10 days. Ceramic clay shrinks as it dries and clay needs to be completely dry before going into the kiln. Any moisture left in the clay will make it explode while firing in the kiln.

3. Cleaning and sanding piece helps clean any rough edges before final bisque fire

4. Bisque Firing lasts 24 hours and all Ceramic pottery pieces need to be put in the kiln for this first firing. This is when the clay is turned into hard stone. The kiln takes between 6-8 hours to reach about 1900 degrees and approximately 12 hours to cool.

5. Glaze Painting can be done several different ways - I mainly paint my glazes on

6. Glaze Firing takes 24 hours. The ceramic clay work will go in the kiln for one last firing. Kiln temperature will reach approximately 2200 degrees which turns the glaze into a glass like coating



*Red or Sheer white ribbon included.

*Ornament size is for up to 12 months

*Kiln Fired Twice...First bisque fired then Glazed fired for a smooth glass like finish. This is not just One bisque fire and then painted with a stain, acrylic paint and marker. Please check before you buy to find out.

* Holiday orders need to be purchased by Oct. 16 due to demand. You may still order for all the Christmas 's to come. If it is a gift, I can send picture postcard that has Snowman on it to let family know it will be arriving.

* Each baby snowman Christmas ornament may vary from picture above and will have its own look.

*When buying, please include child's name, age. I will engrave on back of ornament name,age and year

*approximately 8 weeks turn around time after mold is returned. Holes are added for hanging w/ ribbon, unless requested for no holes. Due to the busy holidays, you will need to order by Oct.20th and return mold by Oct 30

*PLEASE order early for Holidays. You are responsible for shipping back

FAQs

Each listing can be customized to your liking. Choose colors you will find in listing pictures. I have most popular colors listed in my picture of heart chart and if you still like more options there are more colors to choose from. You have writing options to etch or stamp. I can paint on if you prefer too. You may want to match a plaque or ornament you have done in past so all you need to do is show me your past work. I will do my best to match it. Many of my plaques can come with a border if you like and I will send out paper with border options and writing options. if you have a new idea for plaque , ornament or border let me know and we can work on it together. My personal feeling on best time to capture prints is 1 to 6 months
Not at this time
I prepare and make your kit 1 - 3 days and I send out kit first class that will take 3 -4 days. I work from order form you fill out and return with mold. The date I receive is the beginning of the time frame . No rush orders, it is impossible to rush. Ceramic clay has to naturally dry on it's own or it can crack. I create pieces in bulk to kiln fire so it takes more time. Because of Holidays length of time for shipping mold and final piece can be delayed. 10 weeks as of now. LOVE plaque , specialty plaques, and large pieces need to be ordered by Sept. 29 and returned by Oct 8-10
This is for parents who's child fall outside the growth norm and are either smaller or larger on growth chart. Your child may be 7 - 8 months and still fit a 6 month ornament if your child is in the 25% of growth chart or just the opposite is true and your child is in the 90% in growth and is 6 months, he or she may have larger measurements than the ornament. if you are wanting a hand and footprint plaque please trace hand and foot next to each other and measure the total outside width and length. In main listings I have measurements of plaques to give you size. personally I think 1 - 6 months and even to 12 months baby has most flesh and more wrinkles to show in clay
Yes you can. What is great is the mold only gets better and harder over time. I hold onto your mold for 1 year. I have a high rate of re orders from customers after they have ordered their first plaque or ornaments. Many give as gifts to grandparents.
Order form, directions, wax paper, Non toxic easy soft mold to use . Mold will keep for a long time if left unopen. Once opened you will need to use, but you can still package back up well to last longer if needed. If ever sticky it has become to warm/soft you will need to leave it alone and check on it until it cools down. If feels hard just knead to soften. Non toxic material that will need time to dry before sending back. Should feel like a hard sponge and you should not be able to stick a finger into and leave a mark anymore. Please do not package back up into plastic baggie it will tend to soften and not continue to dry. You are responsible to ship back mold.
I have a mold discount. I discount on multiple orders when using the same mold. This is the only discount I have because my pricing is one of the best you will find online.
Yes I know and how I wish I could speed up the process. The main reason is the drying time the clay has to go through. All clay has to dry completely and this takes time, otherwise there will be breakage in kiln. Also I am working on not just a few pieces, but many to be fired in a kiln not once but twice. Each pieces need to be cleaned before a kiln firing and then cooled down after kiln before they can even come out. Then I individual paint and detail each ornament / keepsake plaque to get ready for the final glaze firing. Finally the last touches of ribbon, writing and packaging of each special keepsake before it makes it's way to you.
Please be aware that most listings have a size age limit. I use age mainly as a estimate for sizing. Please be sure to read in description and add in buyers notes child's age in months and name for order. I will not send out kit until I have this info. if you think there is a possibility your child may be able to fit a listing because they may just fall outside the age limit please talk to me. We can discuss it
