Recommend a clay!

I'm looking for the type of clay that could be used tomake hand/footprints..

Basically, is it soft enough that you can push a babies hand/foot into but hard enough so that the clay doesn't get stuck to their skin?

Anyone know what type it is?

Thanks.

I'd go with one of the kits that RelicMaker suggested. These kits use algenate for the mold material. It's really easy to use and it's also non-toxic. Which is pretty important around children.

Hi guys

Thanks for the replies.

I'm already using an alginate called Alja-Safe from Smooth-On for 3D casts - but wanted to see if anyone knew what clay was used in the impression-type kits.

My only experience of clay is with the grey stuff that you fire in a kiln and thr air-drying stuff from kid's art shops. Both would be unsuitable as it seems too wet :cry
