Heaven and Nature Sing Ornaments

These ornaments were created using elements from the my tree in Mixed Media Christmas with Friends.image

You can create the ornaments following the video above or you can order them from my website. Link

Instructions for completing ornaments:

Basecoat the ornaments Sand, the holly leaves Hauser Medium Green, the berries Lemonade, and the final Metallic Gold.

Float Foliage Green against the center vein and on opposite edge of each holly leaf.

Float around edges of berries and leaves with Salem Blue and paint a wash using a slip slap motion over the ball.

Paint the balls with a coat of Media Crackle glaze, I covered everything except the top of the finial.   It works best if you can cover the entire surface at one time, so I put a wire through the finial and hung the ball on a basket handle to dry.

Once it is dry cover with a coat of Media Antiquing Cream.

Allow to dry and wipe off with with soft damp cloth.

I hope you enjoy painting these ornaments.
