The holy family flees to Egypt under God's protection as indicated by the Angels and the Dove representing the Holy Spirit.
This set includes the blank ornament, color photos and instructions - patterns are etched on the surface for ease and to add dimension to the painting.
Another wonderful outlet for our creative journey, each ornament is done out of mdf and laser cut with intricate detail. The patterns are etched on the surface for ease of painting. If you prefer to not use the etching, it can be painted over with Gesso or Texture paste and then the pattern can be applied - as you prefer.
These design elements originally appeared on one of our Christmas books, "Grandma Paints An Old Fashioned Christmas." If you have that book already then you have the instruction for painting this design and can just purchase the blanks.
The nativity ornament is approximately 6" tall by 5 1/2" wide.
