“smooched” ornaments…

 i found some plain plaster ornaments and thought it would be fun to BLinG them up!

i knew Smooch Spritz and Smooch Accent Ink would be the perfect product to add the SpaRkle and SHimMer that i wanted. plus they are both very easy to use.

first i spritzed the plaster ornaments with Smooch Spritz to lay down a background color; i used Sun Kissed on the stocking, Limolicious on the tree and Mixed Berries for the ornament…

then, i used a heat gun to quickly set the Smooch Spritz, you could also just set them aside to dry for 10 or 15 minutes. the drying time will depend on the plaster. these ornaments were made of a VERY dense plaster and were buffed very smooth, so i decided to heat set them to speed things up.

then, i used Smooch Accent Inks to embellish them…

 

i used Pool,Taffy, Kiwi, Sassy Pink, Carrot and Grape Soda to color in the details on the ornaments, then used Moonlight and Tuxedo to add the highlights, stitching lines and outlines.

this would be a great project to do with the kids too! so if you are trying to figure out how to get some “quiet time” next week when they are out of school {or if the grandkids are visiting } give it a try!

  1. oooh love love love!!

    I keep looking at those plaster ornaments thinking nahh too much work – but now!!… out the door I go for some of them and lining up my smooch and spritz!

    FAB!

  2. I have hand painted so many ceramic ornaments over the years, and I love doing them so fun.
    Yours turned out so cute, and probably alot faster :)

  3. ok I am doing these now… and I just came back to find out WHY WHY WHY my spritz won’t dry *LOL* – and looking at your ornaments I have the exact same ones!! They have been sitting now for over 24 hours – so I have just run the heat gun over them and hoping that will do the trick!

please leave a comment; i'd love to hear from you!
