Technique Thursday: Holiday Ornaments with Metallics

Have you ever tried FolkArt Metallics?  Last year’s holiday season didn’t involve any metallics for me, but this year I’m embracing shine.  Let me tell you – I’ve jumped in with both feet.  I love metallics, and FolkArt Metallics are *very* shiny.  I use them in moderation (accents), just because that’s how I roll, but you could paint an entire project with them if you wanted to.  If you’re interested, I suggest you watch this Candie Cooper video done for Plaid that will show you how to complete a fun mini-crown ornament and add metallic accents.  The results are simple but stunning!
