Metallic bronze finishing paint comes with your kit. If you'd like a different look for your holiday ornaments, add on clear glaze for a glossy ceramic or porcelain looking finish. Bronze and clear glaze finishes are shown in the top photo at right. Other optional finishes include Metallic Pearl, Gold or Champagne finishes (see comparison footprint photo). By choosing an optional color or glaze, you'll receive it in addition to the metallic bronze paint that comes with the kit, so you can make ornaments in two colors! Also, if you'd like a more "aged" look on a Gold, Bronze, or Champagne finish, try our Metallic Antiquing Kit (select when ordering above).

Why is this ornament kit unique?
Our Baby Christmas Ornament Kit is unique because it creates a raised baby hand print or foot print image in three dimensions and in complete detail, much better than other keepsake kits which create only a simple one-dimensional negative impression of a baby footprint or handprint with no details!
Your baby keepsake footprint or handprint makes a beautiful, personalized, custom Christmas ornament, unlike any other ornament you'll ever put on your tree. It will be handcrafted with love and customized with the most precious material, your child's hand or foot! This is a wonderful homemade Christmas craft is yours to share with your child. The holiday ornament you create can be used to celebrate Hanukkah or Kwanzaa with your little one as well!
