Create a unique ornament with metallic paints!


  • Step 1
    Using the opposite end of a paint brush, gouge out designs in the styrofoam ball. Glue beads and hemp onto styrofoam with "Tacky" glue, let dry.
  • Step 2
    Paint styrofoam with several coats, using Magic Metallic Paint (dark bronze works best for the first coating). While paint is still damp, spray the ornament with Magic Metallic Patina. Note: It will take approximately two hours for the oxidation process to finish and to see the full effects of the patina spray.
  • Step 3
    When ornament is completely dry, attach a cord for hanging.
