Practice painting the tree on scrap paper before painting on the watercolor paper. Lightly sketch the tree on the watercolor paper.
Follow paint extender instructions to dilute brown paint. Paint the tree on the watercolor paper. Let dry.
At the wedding, lay out the tree-painted watercolor paper with your choice of ink pads, a fine line black marker and baby wipes. Have someone in charge tell each guest to stamp their thumb print on the tree using an ink pad. While the ink is drying they can clean their thumb with a baby wipe. Then have them sign their name next to or on the thumb print with the marker.
After the wedding, personalize the tree with the bride and groom’s name and date of the wedding. Frame the thumb print tree.
Use photo as a guide and follow manufacturer’s instructions for all products used.
Be sure you have a flat place for your guests to print and wipes available to clean ink from their thumbs.
