oddie, question on your snowmen

donnas_gwOctober 27, 2007

Oddie, it looks like you are using a styrofoam ball for the heads. If so, what are you applying to it to give it that "snowy" look? Thank you.

donnas, the ones you see on the snowman posted were glass bulbs, kinda old ones, they were white and bumpy already, out of those so I am trying the styrofoam ones,I have tried dunking the ball in white gesso ,or spounging gives kinda of a bumpy look
bouth are still drying so not sure what will work best yet.

Hi Gillysgal, Welcome to the craft forum. All of us had to figure out how to post pics once upon a time too. Anj over on the Painting forum just updated our picture posting instructions, so you might want to take a look at it. If you just follow it step by step, it is actually pretty easy. Here's a link for you. Looking forward to seeing your pics soon. Luvs
