This post is dedicated to my hand painted Poinsettia Christmas ornaments. Massive expandable detail shots of the various paint layers are found on the original post if you are interested in recreating these (http://sparklysharpandfabulous.blogspot.com/2011/12/hand-painted-poinsettia-christmas.html)


This one is a full acrylic free hand painting of a Poinsettia flower. It is done on a clear ornament that had been previously spray painted a metallic gold-ish color, and then painted over. It has a light finishing of a clear gloss spray paint to help preserve the paint layers.




The second hand painted Poinsettia Christmas ornament I have made so far is more of an abstract Poinsettia. I have arranged all of the flower petals around the base of the ornament, where the hook is located, as though it was the center of the flower. I took a few shots as I was painting this one because it involved quite a few layers.




Would you put these on your tree?

I like the clear one with the beads in it., but my tree is blue and clear glass, so they don't quite fit I'm afraid. If I had a red/gold tree I'd definitely use them though.

Well thank you! Smiley blue and glass sounds stunning! I bet it gives off a beautiful glow. You could make them with silver beads on the inside and an icy blue flower? That could be cool!
