The Paints – I prefer to use acrylic paints to tempura paints.  Canvas is so thirsty that I like the density of the acrylic.  We buy ours at Joannes in the little containers, usually about 50cents each bottle.

Foam Brushes – Aside from being super cheap, foam brushes spread the paint on evenly and quickly.  Kids tend to be ticklie on the feet!  Rinse them off once done so you can use them many more time.  Or if the paint dries, clean them with our Vinegar tip!

Glitter and Flat back Gems – While the paint is still wet I dust the witch footprints with glitter.  I used a hot glue gun for the gems but you can use any glue.  I just really like my hot glue gun, makes me feel crafty.

If your at all nervous about a squigglie kiddo, do this on tile or a plate.  Plates and tiles have that smooth surface that is very forgiving.  Try to get the witch footprint fast but really focus on the outline of the foot.   Once you have it, and the lovely smear, don’t fear.  You can fix it up with the edge of a wet wipe.  Use your pinky dipped in the green paint to fill in the spaces that you had to overly clean or where the foot didn’t touch down.

I know, it sounds like it defeats the integrity of the footprint.  But, you wont care in 3 years as you look at the keepsake with loving memories.
