“The Lord replied, my precious, precious child, I Love you and I would never leave you! During your times of trial and suffering when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.” -Carolyn Carty, 1963 Footprints
The footprints are carved into them. The finish is water color. The secret is that we use rain water to mix with the paint. I collect it running right off of the barn. God provides that rain water!
After being painted, the water portion is finished to a high gloss to contrast the sand portion. The footprints themselves even have a slight gloss to give the impression that they are fresh in the sand. A leather chord is wrapped through the opening at the top.
“God has carried me!” with the reference Matt. 11:28 is painted on the back.
