I love art, but I’m not very good at drawing. I have, however, found some nifty tricks that make drawing easier. Would you like to draw a bear? It’s easy with thumbprint art. Here’s how you do it…
Open a washable ink pad and place your thumb firmly on the pad. (If you don’t have an ink pad, you can color the pad of your thumb with a washable marker.
Quickly press your thumb firmly on a sheet of paper. Be sure to wash the ink off your thumb when you’re done!
Now, use a pen or pencil to draw the eyes.
Bear ears are easy to make, but you need to place them in the right position. The ears begin just to the side of the bear’s eyes.
Finally, draw in the bear’s nose and mouth.
Wasn’t that easy? If you’d like to learn how to make other thumbprint art, check out Ed Emberley’s Great Thumbprint Drawing Book.
