Chris Haughey painted this beautiful poinsettia ornament using Loew-Cornell brushes and DecoArt Americana paints. We think it would look great on our 4 1/2" plywood Ornament Round. The specialty brushes used in this design are a #10 Curved Flat (designed specifically for side loading) and a #2 Flora (great for flowers and leaves). The DecoArt Americana paints used are: Antique Rose, Avocado Camel, Celery Green, Deep Burgundy, Light Avocado, Melon, Soft Black and Warm White.

These pretty ornaments require very little paint but contain lots of silver and sparkle. To make your own ornament basecoat a Wooden Teardrop Ornament with Americana French Grey Blue and paint "crisscross" snowflakes with Warm White. For added dimension, float the outside edges and areas behind the flakes with Deep Midnight Blue. Dot the centres of the flakes with Star Dust Stickles for instant sparkle! Using a #7 silver jump ring, hang assorted Word Danlges or other beads from the centre of the ornament. Use Silver Ornament Hooks to display your finished product. These hooks are great as they can be twisted different ways to angle ornaments to their best vantage points.

Debby Forshey-Choma's houses, painted on this wooden sleigh, are just dusted with little bits of snow.
More tin! Donna Scully has designed these two ornaments painted on Della & Company's Tin. Find them here: 3 1/4" Tin Puffy Heart #PY058 & 3" x 4 1/2" Tin Puffy Rectangle #PY136.We think Lydia Steeve's mischievous cat would look great painted on an 8" Circle Plaque (the design originally measures 7 1/2" so the design would need to be enlarged slightly).Find more items that can be adapted to fit other designs in PaintWorks Winter 2012 on line at www.stockade.ca.
