Allow to dry between painting steps. Wash ornament in soap and water. Dry and then wipe down with rubbing alcohol or vinegar and dry. Try not to touch glass where it is to be painted on.
With a slightly damp small sea sponge dab white enamel paint onto ornament. You may need to remove the ornament cap off to do this. Dry with a hair dryer until totally dry. Repeat process as desired to achieve coverage necessary. Dry totally. 2.
Apply blush to cheeks with a cotton swab using facial blush.
With 18/0 script liner paint eyes with black enamel paint. Start with the line below the eye. With the back end of a brush or a large stylus, dab into black enamel paint and dot the eye. You may also paint the eye circle if you would like to. Starting at the corner of the eye, paint small eye lashes going out from the eye. Add a dot (with a stylus or sharpened pencil) on each side of the eye (cheek area) with a mix of Calypso Blue and a touch of white. Dot each corner of the eye with white. Dry with hair dryer.
With a #2 round brush using Bright Orange enamel paint, paint the nose. Load brush with paint making sure you have a nice point on the brush by rolling it back a forth on your palette a bit, start with pressure on the brush and as you start forming the nose, ease up on the pressure of the brush and come right up to the point. It is basically painting a leaf but in orange. Dry with hair dryer.
With the 18/0 script liner and black enamel paint, paint out the mouth using little pressure on the brush. Add sides of smile. Add eyebrows if desired. Dry with hair dryer.
With the 18/0 script liner and using the mix of Calypso Blue and White in the left corner of the square paint a cross, one line down, one line across. Then add two more strokes in between those. This makes a star/snowflake. Dot each end of line with Calypso Blue and White mix with a small stylus or sharpened pencil. Dry with hairdryer. With glue apply a small rhinestone in the middle of the star/snowflake.
Attach hanger back onto ornament. Glue on pompoms or add glitter to top of ornament if desired. Allow to cure.
