Ornaments Decorated With Vitrea

from $17.99

Vitrea markers are perfect for drawing decorative motifs on clear glass Christmas ball ornaments. The paint markers create a stained glass effect, combining colour and transparency, and their fine point is ideal for drawing more detailed motifs.

Instructions:

1. Following the instructions for the Dipped Christmas ball ornaments project, dip the ornaments into the glass paint until the lower half is covered in paint, and leave the upper half clear.

2. Hang the ornaments and let the paint dry 24 hours.

3. Sketch outlines of the decorative motifs you plan to draw on the glass ornaments, using minimalist Scandinavian motifs as your inspiration.

4. Before using the Vitrea markers and the Sharpie paint markers, shake well, put the nib down on a piece of scrap cardboard and pump the nib until the paint starts to flow through.
 
5. Starting with the Vitrea 160 markers, which leave traces of glass paint behind, make a freehand drawing of your chosen motif in the middle of the ball ornament. 

6. Use the Sharpie paint marker for a dash of opaque colour and the Vitrea 160 relief outliner to add a few more finishing touches.

Tips

Even though it is recommended to bake Vitrea 160 paints to make the colours resistant to washing, it is also possible to let them air dry. In this case, the ornament glass is too delicate for baking.

You will need:

  • Clear glass Christmas ball ornaments
  • Pébéo Vitrea 160 glass paint
  • Pébéo Vitrea 160 markers
  • Pébéo Vitrea 160 relief outliner

  • Bits of string or metal fasteners
  • Sticks or branches to hang the ball ornaments
