When you have read the instructions supplied with your putty kit, prepare the two colours in equal sized balls. Ideally each pot has enough putty to make three to four balls. Mix one set before going on to the next as it can harden quite quickly! To mix the colours together, roll the blue to the white for around 30 seconds, this works best with firm squashing! Continue until there are not any streaks and the blue is a consistent shade. Place the mixed putty onto the card on a firm surface and press the finger into it. If the putty is still sticky then carry on squishing for a few more seconds, but keep checking.
When the putty is no longer sticky but still squishy, press the finger into it. For best results keep the finger horizontal and don’t press too far into it otherwise you will have a flat print. If the finger lifts the putty into a peak when you have finished it is too sticky still, roll it into a ball again. If the putty looks lumpy, it has begun to harden, this piece will have to be left to harden. The hardening process is shorter is warmer weather.
This is a perfect fingerprint impression! It is a nice depth with good detail. The prints that are put into silver are taken from the putty, whatever you see is how it will look on your jewellery as fingerprints cannot be edited. Ideally make three to four prints, it allows you to practise and for us to choose the best print to put onto your jewellery! Allow the putty to fully harden for around 20 minutes before placing it back into the bag.
