Painting window screen Christmas ornaments

Posted by paintedscreens (My Page) on

I'm a screen painter and I have instructions on my website on how to paint a window screen that may be helpful. Use thicker acrylic paint and a dry stiff brush, like a stencil brush. Base coat with a pale color or with white. Dab or spread the paint on gently. Let dry between coats. Place your screen on a black trash bag to help you see what you are painting. See my website for more tips. I'd like to see pictures of the Christmas ornaments.

RE: Painting window screen Christmas ornaments

Great tips, thank you, those are going to be a huge help! I'm looking for the roll of screening my sister gave me to make some decorations with.

You created some wonderful pieces...I love them, they're beautiful!
