water droplet reveal christmas ornament

Make glimmering Gold ornaments that goes with just about any Christmas décor! Use your bright Americana® acrylic paints to create a set of ornaments to match your own style or décor.
Step 1

Remove ribbon from ornament and set aside (or discard).

Step 2

Use the flat brush to paint the ornaments with two coats of Gold Matte Metallics™ paint. Let dry between coats.

Step 3

Use the flat brush to apply a medium to thick coat of Pistachio Mint to the ornament and place on a paper plate. Immediately sprinkle with droplets of water. Wait 8 minutes and move on to Step 4.
TIP: Water droplets can easily be added to the ornament with your fingers.

Step 4

Place a paper towel over the ornament and lightly press down to allow the paper towel to absorb the water sprinkled paint.

Step 5

Lift off paper towel and let dry.

Step 6

Re-attach the same ribbon or swap out for ribbon of your choice.

Step 7

Repeat for two more ornaments, one made with Royal Fuchsia and one with Desert Turquoise, or for as many as you'd like to match your Christmas décor.
