Ms Maggie Mo's Australian Aboriginal hand project: spray hand with thinned white or black tempera, student paints dots with sticks. I showed 1988 Nat Geo Aborigine video of Gagadju Aborigines blowing paint from mouths over hands as part of ritual. Awesome video also shows artist making intricate bark painting.
