One of a kind


Hand Painted Glass Balls 





Hand Painted with acrylic paints on clear glass balls.







Now is the time when you will find clear glass balls in the craft stores.  Of course, you can always find them on-line throughout the  rest of the year.







For gift giving, as a tree ornament, incorporated into a vignette or holiday arrangement, always welcome.







On a large plate, covered with a wet paper towel, add many colors of acrylic paints.  Use large brush and paint directly onto glass.  Use simple designs, circles and dots are fine.  As you gain more confidence, try a few leaf shapes, a candle or two, maybe an apple, and don't forget the white dots.






Let dry, on door knobs or whatever you can rig up.  They only take a few minutes to dry.






















Why not give it a try.  It's super easy.

  1. Delightful! I think the all-floral balls would make wonderful decorations for Easter, too.

  2. Gina, I do love the look of these painted glass globes, and particularly the mix of the colored paint with the clear glass.

    The dots and dashes are put my in mind of Howard Hodgkin's paintings, but let's not tell him.
