God Bless Ye Merry Gentlemen Ornament- JS025

  • Sale
  • Regular price $8.95

This merry gentleman is coming to visit with tree and toys.  Could be a young St. Nicholas, or Martin Luther, who is credited with cutting down the first Christmas tree?  Anyway, he is sure to make you smile.

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.

This design originally appeared in our our book Christmas Paintables.  If you have this book already then you have the instruction for painting this design and can just purchase the blanks.
