The painting of the salt dough ornaments were a success! Oli put her markings on all the ornaments and K finished them off with a shower of glitter and then sealed them with Mod Podge. I'll probably end up making another batch of the salt dough and perhaps have some that K and I paint up. We did do a couple of ornaments on our own, which you might have noticed a glimpse of in the first and third photo.
We decided to use tempera paint and mod podge just in case Oli forgot these weren't cookies and stuck them in her mouth. I had thought about doing a spray sealant on them but K convinced me Mod Podge would do well and he was right. It gave the ornaments a nice glossy shine.
I'm hoping this might become a holiday tradition for Oli. I know Thanksgiving isn't here yet but I am dying to put up Xmas decorations!! :)
