    Default Fingerprints are like faces, never twice the same.[photo]

    My dad (84 years old) who lives with us for some years now, although he only has one bedroom for himself, he has lot of old stuff he gathered over the years in there.
    It is always a pleasure when he comes up with something “new”. In fact this is a newspaper print from his “archive” for over 30 years ago I guess.

    I just want to share this idea, as those who are a bit familiar whit PS can do this ready for transfer and engrave it.
    Could be a top selling item, although the idea is from the previous century.

    Enjoy and share some results if you like this idea , arnaud

    HI Arno!
    All the new — is forgotten old!
    Modern designers use the techniques and ideas of their predecessors!
    Thank you for the demonstration of this!
    It is always interesting to look at the source!

    Someone said once that image engravers used to use their fingerprints as the basis for the lines they used for engraving scenes. They'd get the outlines on in whatever method they were using, smudge the piece with wax and put fingerprints over the area to be engraved and use the fingerprint lines to align their cuts.

    Hopefully someone will explain this more clearly - I know I'm garbling it.
    Enjoy!

    Mike, I don't see what Jesus has to do with fingerprints.

    I've seen that before. It's Jesus done in one continuous line. View the image full size.

    Or maybe it was this one I saw.

    Both images are very clever in their concept and perfectly executed. I can only imagine the work involved and the thinking behind it.

    Arnaud........you need to start looking beyond your religious preconceptions and bias and start looking into the soul of what is in front of you. That way you will start seeing beyond your own prejudices.

    Cheers
    Andrew
