In our new Fairy Tales and Nursery Rhymes ornament series we're bringing some of our favorite designs from Jo Sonja's treasury of whimsical design. As with our other ornament series, we're going to continue to add both historical and new designs to this series.
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 old English rhyme goes on to say that the pig was made of pastry with a filling of currents, but it is more fun to imagine a real pig as I did for many years. First taught at as a convention special event class in Las Vegas in 2010 - it is now available as pattern packet JP3176 - Tom Tom the Piper's Son. If you have that packet already then you have the instruction for painting this design and can just purchase the blank. If you need the instruction for this design then there is an option listed below that is available for that as well.
Tom, Tom the Piper's Son is 5 1/4" tall by 6" wide.
