Rocko's Modern Life was a childhood favorite of mine, so this year I decided to incorporate that memory into our Christmas tree with a Spunky themed ornament. In this tutorial I will be showing you all the steps I took to create the final product.
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
- 1 Clear Glass Ornament ( I got a 4 pack at Michaels for $2.49)
- Acrylic Paint (I used Americana multi-surface satin in dark green, light green, white, black, yellow, pink, orange and red)
- Glass of water
- Foil (or any surface to mix your paint)
- Stand for the ornament (I used a few things I had around the house: roll of painters tape, laundry detergent cup and an old ribbon roll)
- Blow dryer
- Scrap piece of paper
Step 2: Plan & Practice
I knew I wanted to create a Rocko Ornament so I did some searching on youtube and found a good shot of Spunky in Mr. Bighead's Salmon bushes. Above is the screenshot I used as guide for creating the final design.
