How to take hand prints 
1. Tube of black printing ink e.g. Daler-Rowney water soluble block printing colour(from art shop). Other makes include Ocaldo, Speedball, Schmincke – Aqua Linoldruck Wasserfarbe
2. Two to four inch rubber roller (from art shop). Or some other cylindrical obect to roll out the ink (e.g. rolling pin, bottle, can)
3. A4 white paper.
4. 6 inch ceramic tile or you can use a page from a glossy magazine.
5. Tissues or piece of foam for placing under centre of palm if needed.

1. First check skin texture – amount of ink needed will vary. Smooth skin needs least ink, coarse needs most. Most common mistake is to use too much ink, you only need a very small amount – about the amount of toothpaste you would put on your brush! Don’t wash hands just before taking print as this can cause print to smudge.
2. Sparingly place a few blobs of ink on tile or glossy magazine – take care not to use too much or prints will be too dark. With roller, spread ink evenly over tile to ensure roller is evenly covered, and then roll it onto the hand. Try to avoid roller marks by using long strokes. If you haven’t got a proper roller, roll the ink out evenly with whatever cyclindrical obect you have, then firmly press the hand into the ink. Cover all areas of palm and fingers, making sure ink gets into all the nooks and crannies.
3. Shake hand to relax it, place it on the paper with fingers & thumb in a natural position, hand aligned straight with the arm (not at an angle to the wrist).
4. Press down on back of hand, each phalange of fingers, taking care not to miss area above thumb, base of digits, base of palm etc.
5. Draw around the hand.
6. Lift hand up with paper attached. With your other hand, from underneath paper, gently press across base of fingers, beginning of life and head lines between thumb and index finger, down the hollow of the palm. Peel paper off hand and allow print to dry.
7.If centre of palm is not showing, take another print but this time put scrunched up tissues under the paper where centre of palm will be.
8. Take thumb print and any fingerprints which aren’t clear on print.
9. Repeat procedure, taking two or three prints of each hand.

Scanning tips 
Scan left and right hand separately. The hands needs to be in a natural position, with the hand aligned straight with the wrist (not at an angle). Give your hand a shake to relax it before placing it lightly down flat onto the scanner – don’t move it! Don’t press down or it distorts the prints. Maybe place a towel over the scanner to stop external light creeping in. I think scanning at 300 dpi is OK. I need a scan of the whole hand from fingertips to wrist, and it must clearly show all the skin ridges and fingerprints. You will have to resize the picture if it is a large file – send less than 400kb per pic.
