Handicraft Christmas – Instructions
The steps for creating interesting pictures with handprints are clear: put some finger paint on a paper plate and apply it to the child’s hand surface with the brush, instead of dipping the whole hand in the paint – in this case the Color is too much. Use finger-paint depending on the selected subject – red, beige and white for the soft-man, dark green for fir-trees, brown for the reindeer, etc. In order for the subject to be clearly visible, the background of the image should contrast with the print. When designing greeting cards, it is important to place the print correctly and leave enough room for a short spell – like the classic: “Merry Christmas!” The cards can also be painted and decorated, bordered with washi tape, etc ,
Crafting with handprint Christmas – correct technique and original motives
When the child makes the handprints, it is important that they do not keep their fingers too close to each other. If there are areas where the imprint is missing, you can simply fill the gaps with paint using a brush. To get different shapes, you can not paint the whole hand, but only a part of it – eg just the fingers or the inner surface. This gives them the opportunity to create many interesting motifs. If the handprint is already done, wash the child’s hands immediately with water and allow the paint to dry completely before decorating the picture.
