Hello I'm not sure if this is the right place but I had my first try at painting baubles, the DIY kind from the craft shop. I think they turned out pretty, more to follow!

How beautiful. My son and I make some like yours but we painted his teachers names on the out side and gave them as Christmas gifts.  Grin

Thank you!
it was a big learning curve for me I learned
-cheap acrylic (can'y find glass) will pool and ruin them if left on their sides to dry, you must turn them and use a hair dryer even in the height of an aussie summer
-the large ones break very easily and the craft store only imported a few from china
-for some reason the paint melts inside if left in the 35 degree weather.

I'm not sure if I will do them again I may never see any more ones to paint again too.
Glad yours turned out easier than mine!
