Tompte has hitched a ride on the back of a Barred Rock Hen. There is an unusual twist to the painting technique which we hope will inspire some other ideas for your painting times.
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.
The Hen Rider ornament is about 5" wide by 5" tall.
