Create a Color Scheme

The color for the scenery will come from guests’ fingerprints, and therefore it’s important to limit the ink pads to no more than three colors. Otherwise, the finished look may end up unbalanced and messy. An excellent combination to stick with is one dark color, one bright color and one medium-to-dark neutral. In addition to ink pads, also supply guests with colored pens placed inside vessels. They’ll use the pens to write their names. NOTE: While the leaves and/or birds created by the fingerprints play a big part in the color scheme of the art piece, signatures are much smaller, and therefore a wider range of colors can be used.
