Taking Prints

Handprint, Footprint & Paw Print Kits

All of Mooi Handprint, Footprint and Paw print jewellery are made using the true print(s) of your loved one. You may either provide us with prints that you already have (by emailing to mail@mooi.biz), or we will send a simple, mess-free print kit. These kits are safe to use on babies and pets, and are used by maternity wards in the USA for identification.

The kit contains two pieces of special coated paper and an inkless towelette. Also included in the kit are full instructions, order details form and return stamped address envelope.

  1. First clean and dry hands / feet / paw.
  2. Lay out the paper on a hard flat surface, with the slightly glossy side face up. The corners can be taped to stop the paper from moving.
  3. Open the towelette. It will look and feel dry - this is normal.
  4. Wipe the towelette over the entire area you with to print (hand, foot or paw).
  5. Press the hand / foot / paw down on the special paper and hold for a second.
  6. Then carefully lift up and away from the paper. The print will appear within seconds…if not you may have the paper the wrong side up - so turn over and repeat the steps.
  7. Make as may prints as possible on each sheet.
  8. Clean towelette residue off hands / feet / paws
  9. Check that you are happy with the prints. Smudge, extra fingers and toes will be edited out, unless you request otherwise. If you are not happy with your prints you may order a replacement kit here.
  10. Fill out the order details form, which allows you to select shape, finish, add text and layout.
  11. Either email the prints and order details to mail@mooi.biz OR return to the studio in the pre-paid envelope.
  12. Your prints will be used to create your unique piece of jewellery. You will be emailed when prints arrive and details of despatch.






Fingerprint Imprint Kits

The Mooi Fingerprint jewellery range are made using the true finger / thumb print imprint of your loved one. We will provide a kit which contains a two-part silicone putty, full instructions, order details form and return stamped address envelope. The kit is simple to use and captures all the fine details and shape of the finger or thumb. The finished fingerprint impression will be a fraction smaller than the actual print. This is due to the nature of the process during firing.

  1. Prepare a clean area to work. Wash hands and trim nails if required.
  2. Take one ball of blue and one ball of white putty, and knead together between your fingers, until it is a uniform colour (no streaks or marbling). One the putty is mixed it will begin to harden, so you will need to work quickly.
  3. Roll the putty into a ball.
  4. Press the finger / thumb deep into the putty and hold for a few seconds. Adults are recommend to use there small finger, Children should use their middle or index finger, and Babies should use their thumbs.
  5. Then carefully lift up and away from the putty.
  6. Leave the putty for a few minutes to fully harden.
  7. Repeat these steps with the other two balls of putty.
  8. Check that you are happy with the prints. The finished fingerprint jewellery can only be as good as the original impression. If you are not happy with your prints you may order a replacement kit here.
  9. Fill out the order details form, which allows you to select shape, finish, add text and layout.
  10. Place the fingerprint moulds into the box and return to the studio in the pre-paid envelope.
  11. Your prints will be used to create your unique piece of jewellery. You will be emailed when prints arrive and details of despatch.


Fingerprint Map Kits

The Mooi range of Fingerprint Map jewellery are created using the print of the finger or thumb of your loved one. The unique lines of the print are enlarged to cover the entire front of the charm, which gives an amazing 'map-textured’ finish.

A kit is not provided for these prints, as you will only require a few simple household items: A pencil, some plain white paper and clear sticky tape.

  1. Wash and dry hands, then check fingers and thumbs for print detail.  You want to capture any interesting swirls in the fingerprint which are normally lower down from the tip of the finger.
  2. Rub a pencil on a scrap piece of paper until you have a dark patch.
  3. Gently rub your selected finger or thumb over this area, so that your finger / thumb is coated in the pencil.
  4. Press the coated finger / thumb on the sticky side of the tape, using a rolling action (ie from right to left).
  5. Slowly peal the tape off and then stick this flat on the plain white paper.
  6. Repeat this a few times using different fingers. With this method you should be able to clearly see the pattern.
  7. If you are happy with the prints either email to mail@mooi.biz or post to our studio at: Mooi, 4 Tanbark, Houghton Le Spring, Tyne & Wear, DH4 7TE.
  8. Remember to include your Name, Postal Address, Order Number, Charm Shape, Charm Finish (Antiqued or Polished), and if you would like to add any Text to the back of the charm.
  9. Your prints will be used to create your unique piece of jewellery. You will be emailed when prints arrive and details of despatch.
