Week 15: salt dough handprint

24 May

handprint 11

This week’s inspiration comes from:

Praises of a wife and mommy

123 Homeschool for me (wonder how much wilton gel she used?!). This is the recipe we used.

Millyme (not an actual blog, just some inspiration)

My partner in crime and I decided to do a trial run of this so we could re-do the activity with our Mother’s group for Mother’s day.

My partner in crime prepared our activity for this week.

Princess Peanut not as enthusiastic as SweetPea… What is Mumma doing to me!

Before baking…

After baking the back side of the prints had a “wetter” look. After all the time in the oven we assume they are baked enough though!

The finished products:

Look Mumma – this is how we did it! Every time Princess Peanut has seen the canvas she puts her hand on it – so cute!

I mounted Princess Peanut’s handprint on a painted canvas. On the back I have written her name, age and “Mother’s Day”

A little bit of sparkle in their too.. 😉

Verdict: It worked out really well. I had attempted this last year for Father’s Day and it didn’t work out as well (the prints rose and cracked) and the colour wasn’t very nice (I painted the whole thing over the top).

After seeing MillyMe and another Pin from Pinterest (which I can’t show you as they took it off Pinterest due to copyright) I decided to be adventurous and do both mine and Princess Peanut’s handprint.

I think it looks really good (I would make it a better shape next time, but that is easier said than done). In my oven (which I have discovered in recent weeks is dodgy) it took ALL day to cook, but I am sure if you have a “normal” oven the 6 hours would be plenty. I also turned it over for a bit of cooking on the bottom to see if that got rid of the wet look, it made it a little better, but not that noticeable.

So cheap as well as it is mainly pantry items!!

Adaptions: As I said above I would have made a nicer shape to the saltdough before doing the handprint, but otherwise I am sooooo happy with this. It has pride of place on my new shelves (thanks hubby) in our loungeroom ❤
