Russel Powell Paints Amazing Portraits Of Famous Faces On His Hand Before Stamping Them On Paper

 

We've probably all at some stage scribbled something on our own hands. A phone number, a reminder, a shopping list, perhaps. But San Jose school teacher Russel Powell, has taken the idea of drawing on hands to the extreme, going as far as turning his entire palm into what is effectively a stamp. Powell first paints faces, typically famous ones, onto his left palm, in exquisite detail. He then presses his hand down onto paper to capture the reversed image. Of course, Powell has to paint his "hand stamp" masterpieces relatively quickly, as the paint cannot dry before he stamps it! Check out his amazing work below!
