These instructions are to create a 3D hand

Step 1: Equipment

You will need:

  1. A piece of paper- big enough to fit your hand
  2. Pencil and eraser
  3. Felt tip markers- any colours

Step 2: Starting

Start by placing your hand on the piece of paper and draw round your hand using a pencil

Step 3: Process

Start by drawing lines on the outside of the hand

-I used a ruler to draw the lines, but you can free hand the lines

-I personally like to use a ruler because it gives it a clean look to the picture

For extra help follow the pictures for direction.

I didn't erase the pencil it helped with the shadowing to give the 3D depth.

Step 4: Finish

You can create this using different colours.

I like to use bright colours that match, the colours I used were random to fill it in space.

Step 5: Extra- Freehand Pictures

This is my freehand try of this 3D hand

It looks a bit uneven but still looks ok.

In this one I erased the pencil to see if there was any difference, there was no difference but made it harder to see where the felt tip should go because I erased the pencil too soon

<p>REALLY COOL! I will make them as gifts for my 3 yr old brother.</p>
<p>Yo, I did these with my students and they loved it! I also did a remix of your instructable for the remix contest: https://www.instructables.com/id/3-D-Op-Art-Remix/</p>
<p>wow looks amazing, I love the rose ill have try it sometime. You can definitely count on a vote from me :) </p>
<p>Interesting designs! Keep it up.</p>
<p>Wow! This 3D image of hand is looking very great.</p>
<p>Amazing designing! Thanks for sharing.</p>
<p>Wow! This is awesome designing. I really love it.</p>
<p>This is really a stunning 3D hand!! I like it.</p>
<p>Thanks you should try it, very easy :)</p>
<p>Thank you</p>
<p>WOW this is such a good illusion, at first i thought it was a photo of a 3D cast made of yarn. *O*</p>
<p>I'm going to try this and freak people out, thanx :)</p>
<p>I'm going to do this sometime this week. I have just the thing I want to use it for. Thanks for sharing such an easy and effective technique. </p>
<p>This is a brilliant drawing! Well done.</p>
<p>Wow, this is cool..</p>
<p>I've done this before in black & white, but it looks fabulous in color. I love this trick, thank you for sharing it!</p><p>One suggestion I would make for your Instructable: maybe include info on how you got the lines so straight. Did you use a ruler, or do you just have a very steady hand? Also, did you erase the pencil marks or just color over them?</p>
<p>Thanks for your suggestion, will definitely add in more information and thanks again this will make the Instructable easier to follow :)</p>
I seriously thought that it was a glove Instructable or something but this is even better! Love it=)!
<p>so neat - what a cool illusion! thanks for sharing this with us!</p>
