It is possible to use the pawprints of beloved pets, such as cats or dogs, in a variety of artistic ways. These include artwork on holiday cards and pawprint keepsake necklaces made from 14Kt gold. You can pay tribute to your pet by taking their pawprints. It is a beautiful and touching way to do so. This article will explain how to capture paw prints that can be used to cherish your beloved pet, even after their passingPaw Print.
They all have their own unique personality due to the way that each pet’s “pads”, or toes, are formed. It is interesting to note that cats and dogs have different amounts of toes. Dogs have four toes on each foot. A larger pad is located at the bottom of the foot (called the “heel”) pad. Cats have five feet on their front paws, and four on their rear. One larger heel pad is on each paw. Take a look at the pawprints of your pet to determine if there are any special characteristics.
Prepare your workspace. Have white or ivory paper, along with standard ink pads. You might tape the index or paper card to the floor or table so that it doesn’t slip when you make the print.
A second step is to wash your pet’s paws. It is a good idea to have another moist cloth or paper towel on hand in order to clean your pet’s pads once the session has ended.
Third, if your pet is able to allow it, trim any excess hair between its toes. To ensure a clean and clear print, it is important that hair between the pads does not cover the pads.
Fourth, apply the ink to the paw by gently tapping the pad with your finger.
Fifth, put your pet’s paw lightly on the paper. You can practice with a few prints made on a piece paper or index card. Once you are happy with the practice prints made, re-ink your paw and start making new prints on fresh paper.
Finally, dry the paw pads gently with a towel or cloth.
Every month, there are more ways to use your paw prints. Framed pawprints are my favorite, as well as silver or golden pawprint charms, pet gardens memorial stones, and pet books, which are all readily available online.
