So remember the dough ornaments I made on tuesday? Well today I started painting them. I used some acrylic paint, and some block printing ink. Only because this is the paint I have in the house. The acrylic paint worked perfectly though. It dried quickly, and went on easily, but the printmaking ink was a bit thick, and took awhile to dry. I might consider buying more acrylic paint to finish this project.
The dino on the left I painted with just the acrylic paint, and the more blue dinosaur I mixed the two colors together.
Then to make the duo look like a pair I covered them with black polka dots. I used black fabric paint, and a paperclip to apply the paint.
He's cute! I haven't decided yet if we want to spend the money on a Christmas tree yet, but this guy is making me think it might help get us in the holiday spirit.
A perfect pair. Just like my hubby and I. :) That back one is a little sad though. He can't stand up too well. Good thing I plan on hanging them up. I might varnish them too. Give them a little sheen, and help their paint job last a little longer. I'm sure there will be more painted dough ornaments leading up to Christmas. Who knows they might even get to spend some time on a live Christmas tree.
Hope ya'll are having a great weekend, and happy DIYing, chris!
