How to take good quality hand prints
Time spent on taking excellent quality hand prints is time well spent! If
you are considering having a reading over the internet, it cannot be
sufficiently emphasised how important it is to ensure you take really
good prints of both of your hands. When a hand reader looks at your
hands, they need to be able to see the tiniest of detail of your hand
shape, it's outline, the contours of your fingers, your skin ridge
patterns - and not only this, they look very, very carefully at the
detail found in the lines in your palms. It is very difficult for a
hand reader to interpret fuzzy, unclear lines in your hands. Hand
readers look for not only the direction of your palmar lines, but also
their quality, and if this cannot be seen, the chances of providing an
accurate reading are actually quite low.
The more hazy and
unclear your prints, the more hazy and unclear will be your reading! If
you provide clear, detailed prints, you are far more likely to receive
a clear and detailed reading. Time spent on taking clear prints is time
well spent, so although you may be keen to send your handprints as soon
as possible, remember that a little time and care at this early stage
is well worth it.
To take good quality prints you will need:
Slim line Pen
Water based printing ink in blue or black (available from art and craft stores)
A four inch rubber roller (from same art and craft store. A small bottle may be sufficient to roll the ink)
A tile, piece of acetate or glass to roll out the ink.
A towel to place under the paper to cushion your hand while taking the print
out a little of the ink onto the tile and roll it out with the roller
until the ink is spread evenly. With sufficient ink now on the roller,
roll the ink out onto one of your hands, ensuring you cover the whole
hand, from the tips of your fingers to the crease lines at your wrist.
Don't use too much ink or it will blob on the paper and hide important
your whole hand is covered in ink, with your hand in the most natural
position for you, (don't close up your fingers or spread them out
unnaturally) press your palm carefully down onto the paper, and draw
around the outline with the pen, keeping as closely to the contours of
your hand and fingers as possible.
the hollow in the centre of your palm does not touch the paper, lift up
your hand with the paper still stuck to it, and press very gently into
the centre of your palm. Now carefully peel the paper off your hand.
Check there are no blank areas which did not print, and also check that
you can see the line detail as well as your fingerprint patterns. If
there are areas missing, or the fingerprints do not show up, take the
print again, and again, and again if necessary until you are satisfied
with the quality of your print.
before you finish, ink up your thumb and, with your hand and paper at
the table edge, take another print of your thumb, by pressing very
lightly with your thumb onto the paper. If you press hard at this
stage, it will distort the thumb shape! Carefully draw around the thumb
shape, and then press down a little harder to ensure you get a good
print of the thumb and its thumbprint. Lift your thumb and check. If
you are not satisfied that it represents your thumb accurately, do it
again. Label your print with your name, date, date of birth, and also
add whether the print is of your writing or non writing hand.
Now finally repeat this whole process with your other hand, and you are ready to scan your prints to send off for your reading.
How to Make Palmistry Ink Prints
Why Make Ink Hand Prints for Palm Reading?
- Ink Prints Record Progress.
prints can chart your progress over time as you continue to develop new
ways of living your life. Your hand shape and all the lines on your
hand change over time, except for your finger prints.
All the other features of your hands change as your life changes. For
example, as you grow more confident and exert your personal power more
in dealing with people, your Jupiter finger changes to reflect this new
strength. When you use your Jupiter to point more and to emphasize your
points more, Jupiter extends out longer as your hand muscles realign
the bones. It will grow stronger as your personal power increases.
- Ink Prints Make a Record in Time
prints can be a permanent record for how your life was lived at a point
in time. Your ink prints can be saved just as you save snap shots in a
scrapbook to document your life. You may look back over time and notice
how your hands changed as your health and your life style changed.
- Ink Prints Reveal Secrets the Eye May Miss
some cases an ink print will reveal things that are not easily detected
with the eyes. For example, there may be a hollow or unusually
depressed area in the center of the hand or at the base of one or more
fingers. These areas sometimes do not print well on some people. The
hollow or depressed area indicates a stress in the hand. This should be
noted and considered for inclusion in the overall hand analysis.
hollow at the base of a finger is missed often by the eye but not by
the ink print. This hollow or depression indicates some
"ungroundedness" and loss of the energies associated with that finger.
These energies will be poorly used in life and will be problematic. The
larger the missing area, the more those energies will be missing and
unusable in life. Since this is negative news for the person, he or she
should be given positive advice for overcoming such a condition. He or
she needs to pay attention to all aspects of life that deal with those
energies in any finger not connected firmly to the palm in the ink
print. You, the Hand Analyst, should be sure to list and discuss those
energies in detail. See the chapters on fingers in "It's All In Your
Hands" if necessary.
The hollow in the palm indicates a "protectedness" of one's feelings in
relationships with people. It is much like holding one's chest in to
protect the heart from further pain. If there is a blue coloring to the
hollow area in the hand, this indicates there is much sadness and
sorrow still carried from long ago. This sadness will be a well kept
secret and may truly be a "broken heart" from the past. This condition
should be taken seriously. Special nurturing should be sought to
facilitate the healing process both physically and emotionally.
the thumb lower zone will not print. This indicates that the energies
of that area are not being used effectively. The person is out of touch
with his or her "3rd eye wisdom", logic, and reasoning. Even if the
person has strong psychic and reasoning abilities she or he will not be
able to access the information easily. This missing area is generally
related to stresses, and frustrations, about getting results in life.
The recommendation for this person is to calm down and undertake a
dedicated routine of meditation or deep breathing and relaxation
conclusion, inked hand prints are not necessary to do a Hand Analysis,
but they may reveal additional information not noticed by just looking
at the hands.
Equipment to Make Ink Hand Prints
equipment required is minimal and not highly technical. The basic
technique comes from the art of making woodcut prints over the past
smooth paper, such as 20# copier or laser printer paper, works well. I
have tried various types of paper and card stock and decided that this
paper is more than adequate. A ream of 500 sheets at an office supply
is relatively low priced. Heavier papers and card stock are more
durable and impressive for the client but the images are not
for "water soluble ink for block printing" at hobby supply stores.
Black is preferable but I have used red, green, and blue also. Of
course you can have a lot of fun with red ink. For example, you can
ask, "Would you like your hand 'red'?"
- Block and Roller
blocks and ink rollers also are available at hobby supply stores. The
block need not be bigger than 6 x 9 inches, and is usually 3/4 to 1
inch thick. A smooth roller 4 inches wide and 1 inch diameter works
well. Wash them with soap and water after each use. Over time they will
become stained but that is not a problem. Just insure that no dried ink
is left to make patterns or bumps in the fresh ink.
