INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES: Wipe the ornaments down with a paper towel. For sparkle on the roofs and the trees, add the Glamour Dust Sprinkle-On Glitter while the paint is wet.

  1. Country Christmas ornament: Transfer the pattern with grey graphite paper.
  2. The trees in background are done with an Americana Dauber Stencil Set and Hauser Medium Green. After the green has been daubed in, go back and pick up some White on the dauber and apply for the lightest areas.
  3. Clean and dry the dauber and then add a few dark areas to the trees using Hauser Dark Green. Let dry.
  4. Two of the building walls are done with White using the #4 flat brush with just a touch of Milk Chocolate added to the brush.
  5. The third building is done using the same dirty brush touched into Royal Fuchsia and blended into the brush.
  6. The roofs are White, done with a flat brush.
  7. The windows and doors are a 1:1 mix of Black and White to form a grey color. The tops of the window sills are White.
  8. The bushes in front of the buildings are the same greens as described for the background trees above. (See Steps 2-3)
  9. The line work on the roofs is White, done with the liner brush.
  10. The paths are a 1:1 mix of Milk Chocolate and Desert Turquoise.
  11. The snow areas are White Frost, using a flat brush.
  12. The pine trees in the front are created with a basecoat of Hauser Dark Green, then a coat of Hauser Medium Green, and finally a brush of White.
  13. Stenciled Lights in the Night Ornament: Using the Americana Gloss Enamels Fleur de Lis Stencil, choose the stencil design of your choice. Apply the pattern with your choice of color using the Americana Dauber Set.
  14. Repeat your favorite designs on the ornament until finished.
  15. Let all dry.
