Adding your child's handprint to a shirt, apron or tote bag is a fun and attractive way to create a childhood keepsake. Use paint that is certified non-toxic, so that it is safe for your child to use. Many manufacturers offer non-toxic paint in a variety of colors that can help make your handprint craft as unique as your child. When shopping for paint, make sure that it has the AP Certified Non-toxic seal.
Color Splash paints come in a large assortment of colors. They also produce metallic and dimensional paints to create special effects for your handprint projects. If you want to create more special effects, try fluorescent paints. Read the label to make sure that the paint is non-toxic, as Color Splash also manufactures paints that are not suitable for children.
