Impression Instructions

ATTENTION

PINK/BLUE & WHITE PUTTY INSTRUCTIONS
PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE YOU BEGIN TAKING YOUR IMPRESSION


HALI MOTIF ensures sustainability through using biodegradable packaging and environmentally friendly practices. To continue this movement and have a positive impact on our environment, please may you return your impressions in the packaging it arrived in so we can return your finished piece in the same packaging.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • Signet rings - please ensure the impression reaches the outline of the circle on the size guide so it stays in proportion with the ring.

  • If you have a preferred mould, write number 1 on the lid of the tin.

  • If your impression is a double, write 'double' on the lid of the tin.

  • If you would like an initial, write it on the lid of the tin.

  • If there are multiple impressions and one impression is faint compared to the others, it will be assumed that you were happy with all impressions and therefore be automatically processed.

  • Breanna will contact you if she believes the impression looks defective enough to have to be retaken.

  •  If you have any concerns regarding your impression please contact Breanna here before returning your moulds.

Processing Times

  • Once we receive the impression kit back from you, the processing time is approximately 4 weeks

  • If you are creating numerous pieces from the one impression there may be an additional 1-2 week processing time

  • If you would like to keep track as to whether we have received your returned impression, please keep the return tracking details located on the shipping label

  • Due to fluctuations in metal pricing and materials we recommened returning your impression within 3 months. If there has been a price increase after the three months prior to you returning the moulds, there may be a small fee

To Begin

  • Lay out contents.

  • Place large piece of parchment paper over the size guide.

  • Remove parchment paper with wax from container.

Mixing

  • The way the impression looks is as your finished piece will. If you do not like the look of it, you can retake it until you are happy.

  • Warm wax by rolling the wax between clean fingers. You can use a heat device, such as a hair drier if you need to.

  • The wax is to stay in ball form and become malleable. Remove any cracks in the wax to create a smooth surface.

  • Make sure the persons finger is not too dry - you can moisten by wetting with water or using moisturiser.

Preparing Impression

Single or Multiple Impression

  • Mould into your desired shape (a ball will create a round impression)

  • Place onto on your ordered size of design (the size guide is recommended so that the impression does not become too thin)

Double Impression

  • Once the wax is soft and malleable roll into a ball

Bar Pendant or Band Ring

  • Once the wax is soft and malleable, roll into a cylinder-like appearance and place on size

  • Place the wax on your ordered size of design (the size guide is recommended so that the impression does not become too thin)
