I am always trying to find different art projects and crafts to do with my kids. Today we decided to do some hand tracing like you would do to make a turkey at Thanksgiving, etc. Once I traced my hand, I got creative and this is what we did instead. When you are done, it looks almost like a 3D hand print. At least, if you are a better artist than I am, it will.
|First, just trace around your hand on a plain piece of paper.|
|Now take a black marker and start putting lines across the page and over the hand. When you reach the tracing of the hand kind of curve the line like the picture shows.|
|It should look like this when you are done.|
|Now take one color, your choice, (I used brown) and just color a line right up against the black lines.|
|Now choose another color and add it to the lines. You can be sloppy or neat or do thick lines or thin. Have fun with it.|
|Keep going and adding colors until you are done and "Poof" magically you end up with a 3D rendition of your hand.|
