This hand painted wooden angel ornament is a perfect way to memorialize a little one gone too soon. Angel has an ethereal vibe due to my creating her with metallic baby blue and baby pink wings, accented with extreme silver glitter over a base coat of white pearlescence. The words "Angel Baby" are hand lettered in the Italic font in pink and blue metallic paint, then outlined with silver to make them stand out. The glint in her eye was not captured on camera. It comes from 2 perfectly round dots of holographic paint which twinkles when it catches the light just right. Her cheeks have just the slightest hint of blush and her eye and hair color can be customized as well. If desired, I can letter (New Yorker font is neat and stylish) your little one's name and the year on the back at no additional charge.
Eye color choices (Folk Art Metallics)
Inca (Glorious) Gold
Robin's Egg Blue
With over 100 colors of Deco Americana acrylic paint, just let me know what hair color, skin tone you'd like and an idea of a style.
Ornament is then sealed with triple thick glaze which adds almost a glass like appearance to the surface.

I offer quality handmade mementos for all of life's milestones. Most of my items are designed to be customized. The names pictured on the listings are custom pieces I have created, or I have created them for display in my own home. Please convo me with what you would like your piece to say or reflect and I will let you know if it's doable (by changing the size of lettering in conjunction with size of image for example). I want you to be happy.
MATERIALS USED - I prefer to paint on wood, but I can paint on whatever will hold still! I primarily use Deco Art Americana paints, so any color from Deco Art's palette (or Folk Art etc equivalent), I probably have. For glass and tile, I use enamel paint which has been baked. It is top rack dishwasher safe but is recommended to be washed by hand.
