Look at this tin Santa that was painted by Connie Bartch. This is her beautifully painted rendition of the First Star of Christmas pattern that I have been demonstrating during the past month. She was nice enough to allow me to post her painted project and I hope that you will enjoy her lovely work and leave nice comments for her. Thanks again Connie.

Instructions for painting Santa's Face:
1. Base the face with Deco Art Americana Hi-Lite Flesh, float shade with Shading Flesh, highlight with Light Buttermilk. Base the pupil of the eye with Lamp Black, dip dot with Snow White and float a light highlight float onto the eye. Float the cheek with Spice Pink and deepen the float over the mustache with Antique Maroon. Base the inside of the mouth with Antique Maroon. Dip dot the cheek with Snow White.
2. Base the hat with Santa Red, float shade with Napa Red, highlight with Light Buttermilk.
3. Using a rake brush thin Asphaltum down and wash it into the beard and hat trim areas and then float shade Asphaltum under the hat brim, around the face and under the mustache.
4. Using a SL line the hair on Santa's forehead with Snow White.
If you are painting along with me I'd love to see the result.
