Painted Santa Ornament
To make the Santa you will need one medium size round ornament, paint (flesh color, white, black and red), Snow Tex by DecoArt, paintbrushes and if you want to add more details a Snow Writer by DecoArt. Paint a flesh color rectangle on the front of the ornament. It will need at least two coats. With the end of the paint brush handle make dots for the eyes and nose. Mix the Snow Tex with a little white paint (about 3:1 ratio) to make it a bit thinner consistency. Paint down the sides of the flesh rectangle and around the top of the ornament. Paint a mustache, beard and add a small little dot for the mouth. TaDa you are finished!
