Hi! It's Jess from Jessica Welling Interiors. I'm currently obsessed with kintsugi- the Japanese art of repairing ceramics and pottery with gold. So today we're making kintsugi-inspired glass ball ornaments. This project seriously takes five minutes (plus dry time), so let's get started! Hop on over to my blog to see my favorite paint for this project!
Easy Kintsugi Christmas Ornaments
First, remove the metal top hook from the ornament. Just pull it straight up and it should come out.
Shake your paint well before you start, and if you take any breaks. If you don't it will separate and you'll have red pigment coming through. I like to start painting the kintsugi lines from the top of the ornament.
Paint the lines to look like repaired cracks in the glass. Make the lines intersect with other lines. Once the lines are painted on the top, let it dry for a few hours.
Now that the top is dry, turn it over and continue the lines on the bottom. Let that dry too, replace the metal top, and you're done!
