Christmas Countdown 2018 - Day 11

Hi everyone  We've got a fabulously festive kit launching today. Just perfect for you to create a stunning 3D Christmas themed piece of home decor.  The kit contains, one 3D Christmas tree and stand (H:12" W: 11"), one bauble, one 50ml gold metallic paint and one A4 Christmas Robin rice paper.  I'm sure you can think of oodles of ways to decorate the tree and bauble.   Here's how our sample came together:  Step 1 - paint both sides of the tree and stand with gold paint.  Leave to dry.  Step 2 -choose a stencil and use texture paste to add raised detail to the tree.  Heat set or leave to air dry.  Step 3 - paint over the texture paste with gold paint.  Leave to dry. Step 4 - working on one side at a time cover the star with glossy accents and then cover with glitter.  Leave to dry before repeating on the other side of the star.  Step 5 - paint a couple of layers of white acrylic paint inside the back half of the bauble.
