Well – looking at the video several times I would write this sign this way –

I just looked at Adam's video and his thumb strokes his forehead.  One can't
do that without the palm facing the face.  That's why I changed the
handshape.  I had to dig to find the hand where the thumb is in front of the
two spread fingers.

Hello Jorge!


This is the way you wrote the sign for CINZENTO, or GREY...very nicely

You wrote this with your palm of your hand toward your face.

In Adam's video of the sign, his palm was not toward his face, but was
facing the floor...which is more correct? smile...
