Pic #11

I did one stroke, but the leaves could just be painted on in one color. Then add berries using a stylus:
Pic #12

He is done. I use Triple Thick Crystal Clear Glaze and seal the entire backside of the pan, including the spattered parts. Tear some coordinating homespun and wrap handle. Finish off with a bow. And you are done!

I found those skillets at the Dollar Tree

I splatter the edges with enamel, then using a flat brush, paint the face circle. The enamel adheres to the pan, the acrylics then will adhere to the enamel. Then the face is painted with acrylics
