Tinting ornaments

I want to show you how super easy it is to tint Selina's Wooden Christmas ornament blanks.
She cuts them from wood...but I thought these would look great in a color that would still show the wood grain. They come with a center of wood, which I put aside (they don't need a color, they will not be seen anyway)
Grab you watercolors...and water and a brush.
Dab on the get your paint wet with water and blob on!
It only takes seconds to cover one.
Same goes for this ornament.... blue watercolor this time.
After I covered it ...I went back and gave an extra blob of paint on the dots and snowflakes.
They dry real quick.
If you want you could spray with a matte clear finish.....but I personally didn't do that.
These ornaments are easy to add photos to too.
I just took some off the computer...printed them off and cut them out and taped them to the back with strapping tape.

This is my daughter and her boyfriend.
The top center mitten is the untinted wood and the others are tinted.
I love them both ways.
Let me remind you that she has her
