American Sign Language: "a thick blanket"


First you show the blanket, then you indicate that it is thick.

There is more than one way to sign BLANKET, but this is a fairly straight forward version:

Or you can use this version:

And then you can show how thick the blanket was:


Or you can use the general version of thick that jabs a claw hand into the cheek. 
Note: This handshape is NOT an "O." My fingers are actually spread out a bit and my thumb isn't touching my fingers (you just can't see it from the picture.)

Or you can use a specific version that means "THICK-on-me" which could be used to show a thick blanket on top of you, or a thick coat protecting you)
