Hi all, I've just started making fingerprint jewellery and I like to engrave a name next to the fingerprint. The way I was shown how to do it is to wait until the clay is completely dry, and then use a needle tool to etch the name. I'm using it quite lightly but I'm getting very 'scratchy' results. Is there a way I can etch the name whilst the clay is more 'pliable'? Obviously I know I can't do it when its completely wet as it wouldn't work. Another idea I had was maybe to brush some water over the area I want to etch and then write onto it.
Anyone know the best way to do it?
