Today, I have a simple, yet time consuming project that yields a cool optical illusion.
Begin by tracing your hand on a piece of white paper lightly with a pencil...
Begin at one side of the paper and draw a lines of different colors. When you get to the edge of the finger, make the line curve up a bit the width of the finger, then back down and straight across to the other side of the paper.
Repeat a bajillion times, changing colors in a random order.
Remember making these in grade school art class? The hand appears to lift right off the paper! Frrreeeeekyyyy!
Now, go enjoy a cup of coffee while the kids are occupied.
Come back tomorrow for block print t-shirts (gather up a Styrofoam meat tray, fabric ink, an old t-shirt and an ink roller to be prepared).
