I used a clear glass ornament and painted it. I usually use Apple Barrel and Folk Art paints.

Super cute!!!   Grin


How did you get the paint to stick?  I bought clear ornaments to put names on for the parents and in-laws.  I got my stickers to use as a guide, and when I started painting with the acrylic paint, it was like more I brushed on, the more the brush was wiping it off!  I finally said the heck with it and quit...LOL!  Everywhere I have looked, directions say to use acrylic......but its not working for me.  Thanks!

I have noticed with the acrylic paint that it's hard to get it on a glass or any shiny surface really. I actually did this is slow steps. I painted a light layer, let it dry completely, then another until I got it thick enough. When I painted the picture, I just used one coat since it went on smoother over the paint already on there.
