Thyme to show you some Stick Horse Ornaments


Today
 I wanted to show you 
some
STICK HORSE ORNAMENTS
that 
I
 painted

Design

This is the thyme of year that 
my 
STUDIO
becomes very busy!
WHY?
Because
 it's
Thyme 
to
MAKE THE MAGIC HAPPEN
for
CHRISTMAS


My
 Elf HINKLEY 
has
arrived 
to help me in the 
STUDIO



By the way he considers himself a BIG BRUSH!

Let's Paint!




My Pallette


Turquoise Waters, Sky Blue, Night Sky, Vanilla Shake, Muted Gold, Brown Sugar, Coffee Bean, 
Black Tie, Dark Scarlet, Paprika






Carbon



Splendid Gold, Shimmering Silver

I began by base coating both sides
using 
Carbon chalky finish paint 




This was my 
first thyme
using the

They are 
WONDERFUL 
to work with!


Main design is transferred
I am now painting the brindle




The brindle is painted with Black Tie
I added the dots on the brindle 
with
my 
Dazzling Metallic Writer


I completed most of the snow man by using a dry brush technique
The satin finish paints were perfect for this!



Snowman and eyes are done!


Once my snow man faces were dry I painted over them with
my 
Glamour Dust Ice Crystal
to 
make them
sparkle



I painted
 the
stick and ball 
with 
Black Tie and Shimmering Silver





I cut burlap squares to make the mane


I stitched the squares together then fringed them




I used my glue gun to attach the mane and stick



I also attached a clothespin to the back for hanging
These ornaments are BIG!
When finished they are 12" tall!


Close up of the face
This was such a fun project to work on!!

as part of their
 Helping Artist Program
