Hydrodipping is easy on ceramic ornaments. Just fill a bucket, dip slowly and you'll have one-of-a-kind décor for your Christmas tree or fireplace mantel.
Fill a 5-gallon bucket with tepid water (about 78 degrees).
Over a protected surface, place the bucket in a reachable location and shake the enamel paints before opening.Open an enamel paint and stir gently with a coffee stirrer.
Slowly, and gently, pour the enamel paints, onto the top of the water, one at at time.
Once all of your enamel paint colors are in the bucket, use a coffee stir stick and slowly drag it across the colors to swirl them together.
Very slowly, dip the ornaments into the bucket on an angle so the paint sticks. Turn the ornaments for a swirled effect.
Slowly remove the ornaments from the bucket and set it aside to dry for approximately 24 hours.
Let paint dry for at least 24 hours before handling.
