We just got
this fabulous book as a birthday gift. Both my daughters love
it. The oldest likes the challenge of picking a picture in the
book and creating her own version of it and my youngest likes
the idea of using her fingers (with permission!) to create art
- with license to make whatever her imagination tells her to.
book is actually two books. It includes Ed Emberley's Fingerprint
Drawing Book and the Great Thumbprint Drawing Book all in one.
The book comes
with a Fingerprint Stamp pad that has 10 colors of washable ink
and a finger-cleaning sponge in the center. The ink stamp pads
are large and made to accommodate any size finger.
The book itself
is fun to flip through. Who would have thought that your own individual
fingerprints could be the start of cool art?
Complete FunPrint Drawing Book starts the reader with easy projects.
He demonstrates how to create a person, a person walking, birds,
fish, spiders, rabbits and frogs. He then teaches his students/readers
how to create action, moods, and how to accessorize your figures
and drawings. He also has a section that focuses on seasonal themes.
He walks you through simple to quite elaborate fingerprint art.
love this book:
for the whole family
and can be used in cars, planes, restaurants anywhere your fingers
