Today I am working with Americana Frost Glass Enamels and Americana Crystal Gloss Enamels Glitter. I am going to show you how to make an ombre effect on clear glass ornaments.

close pins, dowels (see prep)

Remove the metal top from your ornament.
Put a clothespin in the end. You can also use a dowel etc. (You just need something to hold your ornament while you paint and stand upright in the styrofoam while it drys.)
Clean off the ornament with alcohol using a cotton pad.
|You will be adding several layers of paint. Add the first (thin) layer of paint using a makeup sponge, letting each layer dry before adding the next. Add more layers of paint at the top and fade as you go down.|
|Continue adding more layers until you receive the desired effect.|
You will want your ornaments to cure for 3 to 4 days before adding them to your tree.
