Eeek! Eyeballs are big this year! Literally! I bought small ornaments after Christmas last year. They were hot pink and I just knew I needed them for a future project and here it is!
Ornaments - round and smooth in various sizes
Acrylic paint - lime green, aqua and orange
Felt tip pens - lime green, pale blue, yellow and black
Paint brushes - round
Paint a large white circle in white and allow to dry.Paint a base iris color and allow to dry.
Using markers, vary the solid color with outlines and stripes.
Outline the white and the iris color with black marker.
Using at least on more color, blend the black outlines and and touch up the iris color to add depth.Add one or two dots of white paint for highlights.
Keep and EYE out for ornaments on sale this year!
