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:

  • Paper

  • 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

Squeeze 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 detail!

When 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.

If 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.

 Now, 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.

    Ink 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.

    Hand 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

    Ink 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

In 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.

The 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.

Hand 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.

Often 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 exercises.

In 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

The equipment required is minimal and not highly technical. The basic technique comes from the art of making woodcut prints over the past centuries.

Ink print equipment

  • Paper

    Clean 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 significantly better.

  • Ink

    Ask 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

    Linoleum 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.
