This jolly fellow was created with just a couple of bright paint colours, and his beard used the natural white of the ceramic bauble.
You could go on to paint other festive characters too.
You Will Need
- Ceramic bauble
- Acrylic paint in red, pink, black and white
- Small paintbrush
- Black pen
1 Using a small paintbrush, paint the face with pink paint.
2 When the paint has dried, use red paint to add two rosy cheeks and a hat.
3 Use some white paint along the edge of the hat for fur.
3 Mix up some pale grey paint and add some loops and swirls to the beard, to give the effect of texture.
4 Finally draw on a face using a black pen or black paint and a very fine paintbrush. Tie on a length of twine for hanging.
TIP - rest the bauble on a small roll of tape to prevent it from rolling around
