Multi-Colored Hand Stamp Project

hand lead

 Today, we have our contributor, Angela, from Mom Trusted sharing this adorable handprint stamp tutorial with us!  

Make your own handprint stamp, and use all the colors of the rainbow to make this project! As you stamp, you can use the process as an opportunity to talk about differences, working together, and equality.

 

hand 1

 

You’ll need

  • A “block” to make your stamp on. We used a piece of linoleum, but a block of wood or the bottom of a flat jar or cup would work just as well.
  • Adhesive moleskin (yes! The stuff you use on uncomfortable shoes)
  • Stamp pads in lots of colors
  • Big sheets of newprint

Trace a little hand onto the moleskin. (Write on the back, not the fuzzy side – your pen will work much better!) Cut out (or have your artist cut out) the hand shape. Make sure you get all those fingers!

 

hand 4

 

Peel the adhesive off the back of the moleskin, and stick it onto a hard, flat, clean surface. There’s a lot of objects that will work for this project, just keep in mind that a little hands will need to use it as a stamper.

Then go nuts with the stamping! We started out with one-color hands, but that idea was quickly abandoned! Our multicolored hand stamps turned out so pretty though!

The stamp pads, not so much. Oh well! All in a day’s play!

Oh, and as a happy accident, our hand shapes ended up a little reminiscent of Mattise’s famous cut outs! What a nice surprise!

Enjoy!
