 called
Rollin' The Cookies


You can find the surface for this pattern at 
Tolemine 

My palette for this project is:

Other Supplies

Basecoat the surface
I sometimes also use a small roller for this


Use your graphite paper to transfer design


Let's start to basecoat the design


When painting RED areas such as the ELVES coats
I always paint a coat of either GREY or GREEN FIRST
then I paint my RED


Painting the crock
 I stippled this area to add some texture


Shading the dough


I added
Glamour Dust ( Ice Crystal ) 
to the dough to make it 
sPaRkLe


I just LOVE Prudy's Elves!


This is a
 FUN
 piece to paint!



I am now starting to paint the second surface to this design. 
It is base coated 
in 
True Red




Adding some more
 details and shading
 to the 
main design



I used 
cookie cutters
 to
 trace the designs 
for 
the cookies





Let's add some icing to the cookies!


When my painting was completely dry
I varnished with several coats 
of


Thyme 
to
 paint the frame!
 I painted the frame
 with 
Honey Brown
and 
antiqued 
with 

I let the gel stain dry 
COMPLETELY
before applying
 2 LIGHT coats 
of
Americana MATTE Acrylic Sealer/Finisher 
to the frame
