kids footprints in clay

I get several people who want to preserve their kids foot and hand
prints in clay. It is kinda funny when you ask "Why do you want to do
that?" and they say "Well, I want to preserve their foot prints exactly
the way they are now." Funny because the clay shrinks somewhere
between about 8 and 15% by the time it is fired. So just what are they
preserving.....exactly the way their kids foot prints weren't? ;-)
