INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Gather all of the things needed for this project. The Multi-Surface colors you will need from the Enchanted Forest paint pack are: Cotton Ball, Black Tie, Brown Sugar, Paprika, Coffee Bean, Canary, Green Beret and Coral.
    Step 0 Example
  2. If needed, sand each wood slice and wipe clean with a paper towel. Using a flat brush, basecoat each wood slice with Cotton Ball and allow to dry.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Print each pattern to the size that will best fill the wood slice shape. Cut out pattern and transfer paper to fit onto each wood slice. Position the pattern on the slice and affix with tape. Slip transfer paper under tracing and trace over the animal patterns with a pencil or stylus. Do this for each ornament.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Remove transfer paper. Leaving pattern taped to ornament, fold it back back under the wood piece. (TIP: leave on to reference the pattern as you paint.) Begin to paint the fox in layers, starting with Brown Sugar.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Using liner brush and Paprika, paint the fox's cheeks; leave some brush strokes to create texture.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Paint darker areas such of the face details and tail end using Coffee Bean. Paint white areas onto face and some in tail with Cotton Ball using a liner brush.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Mix a tiny bit of white to the Paprika to create a highlight fur color. Add this color to parts of face and tail. Allow to dry. Paint white details of fur onto face, ears and tail using a liner brush.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Paint Green Beret onto the bottom section of the design. Use the liner brush to create a few strands of grass coming over the fox's tail. Add a touch of white to the green to create a grass highlight. Allow to dry. Dip the opposite end of the paintbrush into the white paint and add four dots onto the grass area to create a flower. Dip the end into Canary for the center of the flower. Allow to dry.
    Step 7 Example
  9. For the skunk ornament, using a small flat brush, paint the dark parts of the skunk with Coffee Bean and the light area with Cotton Ball.
    Step 8 Example
  10. Using a liner brush, paint the mouth, eyes, ears with Coral. Allow to dry. Paint dark areas and face details with Black Tie, using a liner brush. Allow to dry.
    Step 9 Example
  11. Using a liner brush, paint white fur areas onto the black to give the look of fuzziness. Add highlights in the eyes and on the nose with Cottonball.
    Step 10 Example
  12. Paint Green Beret onto the bottom section of the design. Use the liner brush to create a few strands of grass coming over the skunk's tail. Add a touch of white to the green to create a grass highlight. Allow to dry. Dip the opposite end of the paintbrush into the white paint and add four dots onto the grass area to create a flower. Dip the end into Canary for the center of the flower. Allow to dry.
    Step 11 Example
  13. For the hedgehog, paint nose, ears, toes, fingers, hands and feet with Coral using a liner brush. Add some white to Brown Sugar to create the color for the fur. Paint the mixture around the face and body using a liner brush. Paint empty areas in the body/face with Cotton Ball. Allow to dry.
    Step 12 Example
  14. Paint outer edge of hedgehog and face, hands, and feet details using Coffee Bean.
    Step 13 Example
  15. Mix a tiny bit of black to the Coffee Bean to create a darker color and mix a tiny bit of white to the Coffee Bean to create a lighter color. Layer different colored lines of each mixture to create the hedgehog's "spines".
    Step 14 Example
  16. Use Black Tie to create the darkest shade of spines and to add detail to the eyes, nose and nails. Use Cotton Ball to add white highlights to the eyes, nose, feet, hands, fur and spines.
    Step 15 Example
  17. Paint Green Beret onto the bottom section of the design. Use the liner brush to create a few strands of grass coming over the hedgehog's body.
