Fingerprint Characters

When I originally did crafts like the "Thumbody Loves Me" one, I gave photos of the finished projects, but not step by step directions on how to make various creatures with fingerprints.

After receiving a few requests from people who couldn't make out how the critters were made, I've put together this little section with some ideas for how to make different fingerprint pictures.
