There is enough moulding material to make two fingerprint moulds for each child. One pot of White and one Blue per charm (each mould will use half of each pot mixed together). Please note that children under 6 months do not always have a well defined fingerprint with a lot of detail, the dimpled mould will still be unique to your child.
1.Ensure child's fingers are clean and dry before taking a mould. It is advisable to ensure fingernails are trimmed also.
2.Take out the contents of the white pot using a pointy item such as a skewer. Split in half and roll into balls. Do the same with the blue pot contents, keeping both colours separate for now. You should now have 4 balls of mould, 2 white and 2 blue, ensure they are of equal size.
3.Take one white ball and one blue and kneed together using your fingers until the colour is a pale blue with no marbling effect. The mould is now mixed and will start to harden quickly! If the mould starts to set before making the impression the fingerprint will lack definition.
4.Roll the mould into a smooth ball.
5.Put the ball onto the sheet provided, use a book as support underneath and press childs chosen finger (Index finger normally or Small finger for teenage children) into the ball. Keep the finger straight and press deep into the mould without going all the way through, this gives a good deep impression for us to work with.
6.If you are unhappy with the fingerprint or you do go all the way through the mould then just start again by rolling into a ball, be aware that it may set hard very quickly now (repeat steps 3-5).
7.Repeat steps 3-5 for each mould.
8.Leave moulds out of child's reach to set for 10-15 minutes.
9.If you can press your fingernail into the side of the mould without making an indentation then is set and ready to post back to us.
10.Put moulds into the bags provided and write each child's name on the individual bag.
11.Please send the moulds in the bags provided and return the empty pots using the envelope we sent you. Please do not forget to send your order form and add any special requirements.
