While shopping for clear glass ornaments at Hobby Lobby I ran into an employee who talked about the ornaments that she made. Quite simply put, she squirted drops of metallic acrylic paint into the ornament and then shook them really well, drained them upside down and allowed them to dry out overnight!! How cool!! I had to try it. Here is my version. I used less paint than she suggested and some squirts of Gloss Varnish and then shook.
Blue Ornament colors all metallic: Blue Sapphire, Silver Sterling, Pearl White
Red Ornament colors all metallic: Bright Red, Antique Copper, Pure Gold
There are no stamps used in these ornaments, but I think the make a great complement to the stamped ornaments I made. Thanks for looking!!
