Try It Tuesday: Hand Print Pottery Ornament
This was actually last year's ornament that my kids made to give to grandparents and aunts and uncles. Each year they make a new ornament to give as part of their present to their grandparents and godparents and for our home as well. We are big on making homemade presents around here.
To make these ornaments, I did a drawing of each of the kids' hands and then I traced it out on to rolled out clay. I brought the kids back in to the studio with me when it was time to apply the glaze and I let them paint underglaze over them however they wanted and then we dipped them in clear glaze.
Their hands only stay little for so long. Who wouldn't want to keep a memento of this cute little hand and their handwriting on it as well. We just used permanent marker to have them write on their own names and the year,
