The ornament is hand-painted on the inside of the hand-blown glass bulb with oil paint using the “Reverse Painting” technique. The foreground is painted first and the background is applied last. All the painting is done from the inside through the hole at the top of a glass ball using special narrow brushes. There are several layers of paint applied to achieve the effect of depth. The card explaining the technique is included.
Hummingbird and Fuchsia
Do you know that Hummingbirds can fly forward, backward, hover and even upside down! Some nectar flowers, like fuchsia, have adapted specifically to accommodate hummingbirds. Their blooms hang downward, so only agile hummingbirds can reach their sweet treat.
The ornament is 3x3 inches petite round shape. A graceful hummingbird approaching a red fuchsia flower is hand-painted on both the front and the back of the ornament.
It is sealed with a glass red cap and an adjustable gold tassel on a top that allows for display on a Christmas tree or a decorative stand.
The ornament can be personalized with a name or a date.
It is packaged in a red velvet gift box with satin-lined inside.
Makes a perfect indoor garden and home décor gift for Mother’s Day, Easter, Christmas, and every day.
Keep for yourself or make a gift for someone who loves birds.
