So far the best paw print kit I have worked with is this one: It is available at Amazon and Michaels craft stores.

You can have a clay sculpture made of your pet, based on photos of your furry friend. I had two made for my sister by this artist, displayed to the right.

Blown Glass

I was recently contacted by this company that fuses some of your pet’s ashes with blown glass, making a beautiful memorial. I selected the purple color, and it came out lovely.

Check them out at Afterglow Memorials.
