Christmas Ornaments Animal Print, Checks, Dots and Swirls, Hand Painted Finial Designer Ornaments

checked and dots whimsical Christmas ornaments.
They are big ornaments! They are bigger than the ornaments I recently painted
for a Pet Shop, but still fun and funky and I had a great time creating them.
Update May 2017
Visit my new online store dedicated to my mosaic art. I'm offering
 hand painted and mosaic ornaments in coastal themes for 2017!
Pop over and take a look.

primed ornaments for painting
I started by priming with spray primer.
I found them at a designer closeout sale and they were painted in solid matte gold.
They are thick, hard plastic and about 12 inches long.
They were also missing the hanger piece when I found them.

whimsical painted ornaments in process
I added a wooden knob and screw eye to replace the hanger.
Here they are in process with different basecoats and some of 
the decorative painting added. 
Please avert your eyes from my messy looking work space.

Then the fun began painting all the different patterns and designs!

I've been asked how I get my checks so straight...?
Well, if you look closely, you will see that they are not perfect by any means.
I don't draw anything out beforehand but just go for it and 
somehow the overall effect looks straight-ish  haha

mixed patterns on hand painted ornaments
Stripes, dots and swirls...I paint most of my dots with my fingertip!
