You'll see below there will be the colour map; a drawing of the finished ornaments uncoloured with numbers for the corresponding to each section. These numbers will not be on the wood pieces, so they do not show through the paint. Please note you will not be painting each section in order as a few of the colours will build off each other to create a beautiful cohesive piece of artwork.
Dip the brush into the water and use water colours as indicated in the colour map as shown mixing the colours as desired in your paint palette. It is best to use small amounts of each colour as it is easier to get the colour you want that way. Control how pigmented you want each colour by adding more or less water.
You can use the back of each piece of wood to test the colour to see what it will look like on the wood.
The colour map is a suggestion, but feel free to mix the colours; however, you would like to create your own unique ornament.
Some of the pieces you will be painting will need to be painted two different colours. It is best to stack each of the pieces before painting and paint only the showing sections as the upper portion may be one colour and the bottom portion another.
Clean the paint brush in a cup of water and repeat the process till your artwork is complete!
