What is a good costume makeup technique for simulating aging hands?

Creating Aging Hands for Old Lady and Old Men Costumes

For theatrical makeup and supplies, put foundation on your hand to even out your skin tone. Highlight bony area, knuckles, prominent veins and wrist bones. Be careful not to get highlight in knuckle creases. Shadow knuckle creases, sides of fingers, and around the veins. Apply finishing touches of age spots, liver spots, and stipple, then powder. Repeat the 4-step process on your other hand.
