I have a friend that does craft shows throughout the seasons. She is a pro at painting. I asked her to teach me some skillzzz this summer, and she delivered. Another friend of mine gave me a ton of old baby jars she found in her attic. I took the lids over to Terry's house and painted some pumpkin face jars (I posted in October) and these little snowmen. I'm going to give a more detailed painting tutorial soon, but....in the meantime. I love these.
I used regular ol' paint. The base of the snowman is called sand. It took two coats. I then took a watered down brown and ran it over the sand to make it a 'dirty' snowman. Next up were the face details (the coal mouth was made with the end of a paint brush) and then I flicked white paint over the whole thing. Once he dried I added a coal of clear sealer and then some twine.
