Step 1: Preparation of the paint

  • Arrange all materials in your workspace.
  • Place the plastic baubles on cups to elevate them and make pouring paint easier.
  • Choose the paint colours you want to use.
  • In separate cups, pour each colour of paint and add the pouring medium to each cup.
  • Using the wood sticks, carefully mix each colour with the casting medium until you obtain a fluid consistency.

Step 2: Pouring paint

  • Pour the different colours of mixed paint onto the plastic balls at random. Allow the paint to flow and mix naturally.
  • Gently tilt the plastic baubles in different directions to spread the paint and create unique patterns.
  • Let the balls dry completely. You can place them on the collection tray to remove excess paint.
  • Once the baubles are dry, add extra detail with fine brushes and other paint colours if you like.

And that's it! Now you've got some magnificent, unique Christmas tree baubles created using the pouring technique! Feel free to personalise according to your taste and creativity.
