    • white cloth
    • 3/8" stencil brush

    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. First clean all ornaments with Rubbing Alcohol and paper towels. Let dry completely.
    2. Use a cosmetic sponge dipped in White Frost. Dab excess paint off on plate or palette then lightly dab over ornaments evenly. You only need a light coat to give a little "tooth." Let completely dry.
    3. Use the Frost Writer to make swirls, snowflakes, holly berries, etc. randomly over entire ornament. Let completely dry.
    4. Use a 3/8" Stencil brush to apply Radiant Red on two and one each Cosmic Blue, Majestic Purple, and Brilliant Turquoise. Swirl brush to get into all the crevices. Rinse and dry brush very well.
    5. Use same brush to dry brush a second color on top. Add Elegant Emerald over red, Orange Flicker over the other red, Silver Spark over Cosmic Blue, Fab Fuchsia over Majestic Purple, and Lavish Green over Brilliant Turquoise. Rinse brush. Let dry.
    6. Use a clean white cloth to buff all ornaments to give a really shiny sheen.
    7. Use scissors to cut ribbon of choice to match each ornament.
    8. Tie ribbon to ornament and enjoy!
