I'm in the mood to paint some Christmas balls. Does anyone have any good links or books you can suggest?
Thank You

I went through some of my books, scanned some patterns and reduced them down on the puter. Worked out great!!! I'll post a picture when I get them done.

Here's a fun site that I ran across today. (pgs 8-end) You could probably duplicate any of these. ~A

Here is a link that might be useful: Hand painted glass ornaments

I got a great pattern on this site years ago & finally painted a couple last year. The glass bulbs are made to look like cats by adding felt ears on top and covering with"snow" in a jar for fur. Painted eyes bring them to life. Real cute. You could also make them into dog faces I would think.
