I was thinking of doing a hand print of my 10mo dd as part of my dh's fathers day present, but I tried with paint the other day and it was a DISASTER! It was just a big smudge on the cardboard and I picked up her hand as quickly as I could. I also got paint on her clothes and I thought it was wash out and it didn't! On a bright note she thought it was great fun to be covered in paint!
Needless to say I'm not in a rush to try again, but I wonder how it is meant to be done and if anyone has any tricks (I assume 2 adults might be helpful, but obviously I can't ask dh to help out! ).
