- My tip for getting good hand print art is to put the paint directly on the hand with a paint brush.
- Press the hand onto the center of the wood slice. Try to get all of the fingers and palm.
- Remove hand and wash away paint.
- Allow the hand print to dry completely before continuing.
- Prime a black paint marker until it is writing well.
- Add “hooked on” with whatever name the child has for their father or grandfather.
- Paint on a fish hook, line, fish eye, and mouth.
- Be sure to add the name and year so you will not forget!
- You may have to go over all of the writing a few times with the paint marker to get the same look as on my hand print art.
- Allow to dry completely before adding a hanger to the back if desired.
Any dad or grandpa will love some hand print art this Father’s Day! Get those little hand in some paint and make something creative. You will love this in a few years when their hands have grown and you can barely remember them when they were tiny! This is perfect for those dads that love fishing as well!
