5. Use the black marker to draw a mouth, nose, and eyes. (You may want to use a pencil as a guide first to get the placement on the face just right.)

6. With the pencil, lightly draw two large circles around the eyes as a guide for Maz’s goggles. Next, paint over the two circles with the silver paint.

7. Dip a finger in the silver paint and press fingerprints on either side of Maz’s head for the earpieces of her goggles.

8. Paint lines from the circles to the fingerprints to complete the goggles.

9. Next, mix a small amount of white paint with black paint to make a dark grey. Paint a thin hat on Maz’s head with the dark grey paint.

Let all paint dry, and your Maz handprint painting is complete!
