i had my 3 yr old son make a hand print in a pie plate in glaze. I just did a spring green pie plate with a light blue hand print (not sure how the color will layer but I don't mind as long as I have his print)
I was thinking about gifts for my parents and in laws for christmas, is it safe to have people make hand prints with glaze?

Maybe for kids, stick with underglazes.
Under glazes will keep a truer print with even the fingerprints showing but your glaze will flow and soften the image.
