I’m not sure if it’s come up here yet, but I freaking LOVE Gnomes! I wish I could remember where, but (somewhere!) recently, I saw a Gnome that was completely covered in glitter. I thought that it was the coolest and of course, had to have one!
I had this little dude, who had done some time outdoors, and had gotten a bit faded from the sun. So I decided that I would make him my glitter Gnome!
This tutorial will of course, work with just about anything. But in my case, I was after a glitter Gnome, so that’s what I’m painting! :)
Supplies you’ll need:
- Extreme Glitter paint by Plaid/FolkArt
- Acrylic paint in a matching color
- Paint brush
- Something to paint. Obviously :P
This is really pretty simple and hardly even qualifies as a tutorial! :P
Step 1: Apply a base coat of acrylic paint and allow it to dry. Do multiple coats if you need to. Make sure no color is showing through.
Step 2: Apply a coat of the Extreme Glitter paint and allow it to dry. If you’re not satisfied with the amount of glitter, keep applying more coats until you’re happy with it. I did two coats on my Gnome.
I wish that I would have picked a different color (I’m totally lusting after the peridot color!) but I already had the glitter paint in red, left over from something I made for Halloween. And I swear that the original glitter Gnome I saw was red! So I went with red! I’m on the lookout for something else to glitter paint now. I love this stuff!
I hope you like it! I would love to see pictures if you give it a try!You might also like these posts:
