Arrive a few minutes early to get comfortable. I highly suggest bringing kids a snack and/or feeding your babies right before your appointment.
I will have the clay prepared before your appointment, we will then discuss your options and choices for shapes, colors, etc.
While you hold your little ones I will gently press their hand in the clay to make an impression. This does not hurt, and I like to give the older kids a bit of clay to play with to ease any fears that might strike up.
After your visit I will then design your impressions as we discussed, fire the impression(s), hand paint them and then fire them a second time.
