Santas don’t always have to wear red…

As I sat looking at the two 2015 resin Santas I had (sorry, these are all sold out), I just didn’t want to paint him red. I have a Santa collection at home, most of them are ones that I have painted over the years, and alot of them are dressed in various colors of red. I wanted something different for this guy, and knowing his textured jacket would be tough, I decided I was only going to dry brush highlights over the majority of the piece. After much thinking, I decided to paint him DecoArt Americana Black Green….and I loved it instantly! The dry brushing made the folds pop and he is sure to be a delightful piece to display with the rest of my Santas this season. So, remember, Santas don’t always have to be dressed in red…

Happy Painting!

    Hi! Love the color on the Santa’s! That gives me some great ideas—why not paint Santa’s green/purple/etc???? Thanks for the inspiration! Have a great week! S. 🙂
