Fun, Fun, Funprint..Fingerprints

 We found the most fun art book from the library this past week.
 We discovered the best way to make fingerprints was to use slightly wet watercolor paint.
Whatever you do, DON'T use something like these pigment inks we had. 
They never, ever wash off hands, (or towels, or clothes)---BIG mistake!
 Simply make fingerprints onto heavy (I use 24 pound) printer paper.
Next you decorate with a black sharpie thin marker.
 You can see the difference between a regular sharpie and a thin sharpie....the character on the far right was made with a regular sharpie.  (Kimberly wrote "iH" and then was quite embarrassed when she saw her cute!_
Gracie's completed folks.  This was a lot of fun.
