My third paint job on new molds always tends to be playful and this time was no exception!
I decided to try and paint it with very thin washes of color, almost like a watercolor painting. It came out pretty well and I coated it with a heavy gloss shine to make it look more like a glass ornament (at least from the front).
Left the back a flat matte so it blends in better with the rest of the tree when viewed from the back. I think I might try doing a wash over the label on the next few just to blend it in a bit more.
The ornament is completely handmade! It was sculpted by me in Super Sculpey Firm, I created the OOMOO 30 mold, and I cast them in white Amazing Casting Resin. It currently has a thin green ribbon that can be easily removed. The resin is quite sturdy, so you should be able to use it with any hooks you already have.
The cardinal ornaments weigh an average of 0.6oz, are approximately 2.75 inches tall and 2 inches wide. They are roughly 1/8th of an inch thick at the body, but most of the ornament is around 1/4th of an inch or less.
Medium: Liquitex White Gesso, FolkArt Acrylics (2901 Apple Red, 2900 Cardinal Red), and Apple Barrel Acrylics (21470 Ripe Tomato, 21386 Arbor Green, 20530 Wedgewood Green, 20504 Black)
