whimsical wood gingerbread man

Are you hosting a Christmas dinner and want to add a little something to your table? Paint a super cute wood gingerbread man for each guest. Not only will they add fun to your table, they are also fabulous gifts your guests can take home!
Step 1

Squeeze a little metallic paint onto a paper plate (or palette paper); then add water to the barrel of your water brush.

Step 2

Now, squeeze the barrel of your brush and allow it to get saturated with water as well as dilute the Copper paint. Paint the body of your gingerbread man. Let dry.
TIP: Try to stay inside the lines as best as you can for a clean look.

Step 3

Use paint pens to highlight details, such as the gingerbread man’s eyes, nose, mouth, bow, buttons and the squiggle lines on his arms and legs. Let dry.
