One of the most endearing themes in folk art is that of bridal painting. Here is my presentation of the new couple, to tempt the brush of the artist who wishes to do a special piece honoring this important life event.
This package includes a high quality greeting card (with envelope), blank ornaments, color photos and instructions for the design. 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.
The Colonial Merry Makers ornaments are approximately 6.5" tall by 3" wide.
The card measures 5" by 7".
