I’ve always had a weakness for vintage ornaments – and anything with pretty glass! Since this was “shiny things” week I decided ending with a lovely red ornament would be a fun challenge!
Tutorial: Drawing Mercury Glass Vintage Ornament
Colors for markers and pencils are listed in the supplies at the end of this post.
Watch the video below and scroll to the end to leave comments or questions — or click HERE to watch it on YouTube and leave comments over there. I read both dutifully!
This one is super easy to draw: two circles, a hangy thing on top, and point at the bottom! Or use a stamp for a round ornament and make the ridges in that – it’s fun to try!
You may be wondering why I used a Stonehenge sketchbook for this: it’s because I wanted to finish off with pencil. I knew that top layer was what would make or break it, and needed the texture of this paper to pull out the richness of the Polychromos pencil pigment.
