Flo Prints In the Sand
Cast a memory in glass to keep forever
This fun, do it yourself product creates individually cast glass impressions of your dearest young ones feet and hands. Even paw prints of your favourite fur friends can be made into treasured keepsakes to last a lifetime.
Once dry, the printed moulds are brought back to Flo Glassblowing’s studio where it is used to press into a fresh bed of sand. Hot molten glass is then poured directly onto the impression using a technique called Sandcasting! The glass tiles take overnight to cool in a kiln and the finished result is a stunning commemorative keepsake.
Unlike ink or clay prints, these glass impressions are mess free and will never break down. Illuminated in the light, they stand upright and showcase beautifully as an art piece with extra special sentiment. Perfect in front of the window or on any mantel, they also make for lovely bookends, or window tiles. Most importantly, each finished item is solid and extremely durable so that it can be cherished forever in the home for generations to come.
