Heavenly Bodies Ornament - JN016

  • Sale
  • Regular price $9.95

Angelic musical notes softly painted on top of a stylized universe create a whimsical, magical moment. A technique for painting soft edges as well as face studies is presented here. 

This set includes two blank ornaments, 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 in our pattern packet JP1555, "Heavenly Bodies."  If you have that packet already then you have the instruction for painting this design and can just purchase the blanks.

Unpainted ornament: 
The angel ornaments are approximately 5.5" tall by 5" wide.
