Crappy impression compound 2009 purchase
the frame is nice…the compound sucked.It didn’t even take the mold of the foot…it just looks like a square of clay next to a picture of our babyMerry Christmas Grandma!
Nice product, stays a little soft
I previously used a set that featured Sculpey material to make hand and foot print casts. The Sculpey material is a little firm, and with those soft little baby hands I was too nervous to push them hard into the material, so I only got fairly shallow impressions.With THIS set – the Babyprints brand – the material is different. You don’t bake it, it just air dries. It is much softer, so you can get a deeper, nicer casting. However, it seems to stay a little soft even after setting. I’m not sure whether it will survive the ages as well as the Sculpey stuff does.
fun and cute
This is cute, and we had fun trying to get our son’s hand print while he was asleep. It looks pretty cute, but don’t expect it to be perfect. It is hard to get their hand or foot pressed in hard enough to make a good print without waking them (otherwise a hand print would be out of the question for our squirmy son). And when you cut the edges you can’t get them quite perfect, nor can you roll it out perfectly flat without any flaws. Don’t get me wrong, it looks good, just a warning for those perfectionists out there (I guess I am one!).
This product is worthless! I had to try and “lightly press” my daughters foot into the plaster no less than 9 times and each time it barely made an indentation. We tried everything, from rolling the plaster a little thicker for more cushion while pushing, pressing her foot a little harder and nothing worked. We could have thrown our $30 for this product out the car window and gotten more satisfaction and a better memory than this piece of junk will provide. We ended up with a very faint, almost unreconizable imprint that will most likely be replaced with an ink impression if we can find it soon enough. Save your money and buy something else if you really want a true memory of your child’s foot or hand.**UPDATE: I emailed the manufacturer Pearhead, after receiving this product. They sent another plaster packet out and we tried it again. We followed the directions as noted and it still did not work. We again were left with a horrible, barely there print. This product truley is a waste of money. We ended up ordering the Inkless print kit from another company for much cheaper, worked great and we got the keepsake this product/company could not deliver on.
frames are nice, but…
The clay that comes with the frame isn’t the easiest to work with. If you don’t get the clay absolutely paper smooth and flat, you will get a pot marked, dimpled result. However smooth you are able to roll out the clay is the way it will dry, so don’t think its going to change when it dries, it doesn’t. One print worked well, the other didn’t because I was unable to get the clay super smooth.
I purchased this to give my husband for his first Father’s Day & he absolutely loved it! I had a hard time getting the hand print to stick with the double-sided tape & it kept falling in the frame. I was desperate for a quick solution & put some jewelry glue (the ONLY kind of glue I had) on the back of it, and it’s been sitting in place ever since. I’m thinking of purchasing another one for the grandparents next!
Simple way to display keepsake
I bought this frame twice. Once for my daughter and once for my son. The frame is simple, which I love.The imprint material is great and easy to work with. I just took it out of that package, worked with it a little, then rolled it out to imprint my child’s hand or foot print. No water required. No mess to clean up. There was no residue left on my children’s hands either.
This was a gift for a friend. She said the clay was very easy to work with and after the first failed attempt to get her infant’s foot mark she was able to re-roll the clay to set it again.I viewed the end product and it looks very nice.
I love this product so much I bought 1 for all my friends. I plan on buying 1 for my sister also.
Does not work. Returned it.
Impression material does not work. Would not keep the impression, it springs back. The frame is nice but not worth it if can’t get an impression.
DO NOT BUY – DOES NOT WORK
Bought this two years ago for my first son and it worked great. This time, the clay to keep the impression was awful. Not sure how to describe it, but it wouldn’t allow for a visible footprint. Sent it back and got a new one. Same problem. Must be an error in the current production. Do not buy. I ended up using an online recipe to make my own with salt and flour.
