How To Make Fingerprint Birds
You Will Need:
- Inkpad or try paint soaked into a sponge
- A wet cloth to wipe grubby fingers
Ok, this is so easy that all you really need is a simple picture to follow. Try to get an even coverage of ink or paint and then press your finger onto a piece of paper. Once the fingerprint has dried add eyes, beak, wings, and feet with a pen. Make sure to wipe your finger between different colors or ink/ paint and when you have finished your fingerprint project!
It really is as simple as 1, 2, 3! Now mix it up a bit with the angle of your fingerprint or do an open beak or a flying bird. Add some bird food a barn, tree or the beach. Make larger or smaller birds by using different fingers.
