Dachshund in a Santa Suit, Hand Painted Glass Christmas Ornament 3 1/8"'

Dachshund in Santa suit Christmas ornament
Description: Hand painted 3 1/8" glass Christmas ornament that shows a dachshund in a Santa suit outside on the snow with some glittering evergreen trees in the background. Above that is a blue sky in which is written in white lettering, "Merry Christmas!" This is all encircled by a stripe of gold glitter. The rest of the ornament is dark blue.

How Made:
Started out as a clear glass ornament which was primed with white pigmented shellac, painted with acrylic paint, decorated with glitter and  finished with a clear gloss acrylic coating. The whole process takes a couple hours total working time spread out  of several days because the various coatings have to be given a proper amount of drying time.

Size: 3 1/8" or 80mm in diameter

Date: Painted in November 2012

Status: Sold

Artist: David S Straughan of Pelham, NH
