ASL - His face is rough

We just learned in ASL how to say Her hands are soft

Let's learn how to say His face is rough.
To say "his" you push the palm of your hand out away from you toward the right, like you are going to hi-five someone.

To say "face" you draw a circle in the air around your face.

To say "rough" you put your left hand out in front of you, palm facing up, with your fingers curled up.
Take your right hand like a claw and act like you are scraping the air above the palm of your other hand.

Here are some helpful videos to show how these signs are done.
