Adventure in dough, part 2!

The salt dough ornaments are all painted! :D

I painted them with watercolour, followed by 2 coats of gloss acrylic varnish. Despite the nasty smell of acrylic varnish while they were being painted, they actually still smelled pretty much like cinnamon and not very much like acrylic after the varnish was dried. I’m glad! :D

This one is my favourite. Just a very subtle blue.

Before I painted them I kind of pictured them in porcelain blue (that’s why I used watercolour), so I painted several like that.

I was going to paint all of them blue, but then I figured since I got all my colours out I might as well see how they look with yellow and pink…

The surface started to crack a bit after the varnish was dried (you might see it if you look closely), but I don’t think it’s a big deal.

I’m actually quite happy with how they turned out, and I quite enjoyed painting them! So I think I might make more of these ornaments with the leftover dough instead of making owls. I can always make another batch of dough to make owls.

Have a great weekend! :D
