Jo Sonja's Nativity Ornament series. Another wonderful outlet for our creative journey. Each collection includes instructions, color photos, patterns and four etched MDF ornaments. As you can see below, each ornament has the pattern etched on the surface to help create dimension in the painting and eliminate the need for tracing.
If you prefer the etching can be painted over and pattern applied. Jo Sonja will be continuing to add new designs to this series.
