I grabbed some wood ornament blanks from Hobby Lobby and knew that I wanted to create some kind of glass and resin Christmas ornaments. While looking through my stash, I found a bin of chandelier glass that had tons of pieces to make pretty little angels. These were gifted to me, but I'm sure you could find similar stuff at any craft store, Etsy, or Ebay. I'm going to show you how to create these angel ornaments from chandelier glass!
I'm going to spray-paint my chandelier pieces so that they show up better against my wooden ornament. I am using Krylon Gold Leaf and Krylon Looking Glass Silver, but you can use whatever you have. Spray both the front and the back - no need to seal them! Let them dry for an hour or two.
Next, I'm going to take a metallic silver pen and a metallic gold pen to add a halo and accentuate the ornament topper.
Take your glass off of your ornament so that you can get resin underneath those pieces.
Mix 1/4 ounce of resin and stir...
I grabbed these wooden angels from Hobby Lobby and knew I wanted to create something fun with it! This tutorial is really just me playing and adding fun stuff to these cute little angels. I am going to do a little bit of painting, adding glass, adding foil, and finishing it off with resin.
The first one I am painting a metallic purple color with some metallic teal on the body. Then, I'm painting the wings with Metallic Pearl.
The next one, I am painting with a metallic pink - Rose Shimmer and the wings with the Metallic Pearl. I am taking some foil glue and painting that onto my angel. Let this dry. Then, rub your foil on your angel.
My next angel I am painting white. I have a stencil that I am going to use on this one's wings. Take a small stencil brush and apply some Metallic Pearl paint. Then, I am painting body gold.
The next one I am painting with the Metallic Blue Lagoon and white wings.
My next angel is going to be painted with a silver color...
Hello friends! We’re going to make a cute, quick little angel today on a 6x12 canvas. This one is going to have a more bold background than I normally do because I want her dress to pop! I’m excited about this one, so let’s get started.
First, we’re going to paint the background. I’m using white, seafoam green, and beige. Grab your palette knife and spread your paint on the canvas, alternating between the colors. Just kind of "wiggle" the paint on in a natural way. Let dry.
Tape your angel tracer onto your canvas. Place graphite paper underneath and trace your angel onto the canvas.
Next, use gold paint to create a halo glow around her head and then use a warm beige color to paint her face and neck.
We're going to paint her dress now. First, I started with a paintbrush and painted the outline of the top of her dress with white paint. I then took a palette knife to dab some brown into the dress. Next, I used my palette knife to...
