“Stir” Rose Ornament

Load #3 round brush with Royal Fuchsia. Tip the end of the brush with Snow White.

“Stir” a clockwise circle on the ornament. If more Snow White contrast is needed, add another “swirl” of Snow White paint only. Repeat roses randomly on front half of ornament. Let dry.

Use the gold Craft Twinkles® Writer to make glitter dots among the roses. Let dry. Step 5

Repeat Steps 1-4 to paint the other side of the ornament.

Gold Glitter Ornament

Use the #1 round brush to paint Shimmering Silver five petal flowers on the top part of the ornament. Add a Glorious Gold dot at the center of each flower. Let dry.

Use the gold Craft Twinkles® Writer to make a zigzag line around the center of the ornament.

When dry, use the Craft Twinkles® Writer to make gold glitter dots among the flowers at the top half of the ornament.

Three Roses Ornament

Tip: Refer to “Strokes for Rose” Worksheet (Download).

Dip a corner of the #4 Flat Shader in Royal Fuchsia. Dip the opposite corner in Snow White.

Holding the brush at a 60 degree angle over a paper or plastic plate, stroke the brush several times in the same spot to blend the paint across the brush.

Paint a “C” stroke for the top part of the rosebud. Paint an inverted “C” stroke for the bottom of the rosebud.

Add side petal “C” strokes to each rosebud. Repeat to make a cluster of three roses at center of ornament.

Load a #1 round brush with Festive Green, then tip with Snow White. Paint tiny leaves near each rosebud.

Add additional leaves with Glorious Gold Dazzling Metallics among the green leaves and to create a band around the middle of the ornament.

Optional: Repeat rosebud design on the opposite side of the ornament.

Twig and Berries Ornament

Use the #1 liner to paint a Glorious Gold “wavy” line around the top part of the ornament.

Load a #1 round brush with Festive Green, then tip with Snow White. Paint tiny leaves along the wavy “twig”.

Add clusters of three True Red dot berries along the twig and leaves. Fill in a few single True Red berries where needed on the twig.

Tips
