Best air-dry clay for newborn footprints?

Posted by bhammuse (My Page) on

I'm new to ceramics/clay - have searched the forum, but didn't see a thread on air-dry clay for newborn footprints.

There are a ton of DIY newborn footprint keepsake/frame kits on the market, but I'm more interested in making my own footprints in air-dry clay and custom framing, or making into ornaments.

Any suggestions on what brand of non-toxic air-dry clay holds up best for this use?

Try the clay and/or kits at We have used them for 2 of our children and the clay is great - and the prices are very reasonable.
