Get to Know

Hi, Im Kris, creator of "lisianblue" - which comes from the listhianthus flower, which is one of my favorites, especially the blue - So I changed the listhianthus to lisian and added blue to come up lisianblue! I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. Creating has always been my strongest ability.

ORNAMENTS - Each hand painted ornament is a unique creation and will never be reproduced. I mostly use the silver paint lined ornaments, removing the original outer paint before I start painting. All ornaments are painted a little at a time to allow the paint to dry so I can handle another portion. Most ornaments have 3 - 5 layers of paint, allowing 24hrs drying time between layers.Taking care of the ornaments is easy - Wipe clean with soft damp cloth if needed. Please do not submerge silver paint lined ornaments in water (or anything else), - it will damage the lining.

GLASSWARE - All painted glassware is washable in the dishwasher or by hand. I have glassware I painted 6+ years ago that gets washed frequently in the dishwasher and it still looks great.

STAINED GLASS - An occasional cleaning and then polishing with a liquid car wax will help keep glass clean and the solder shiny.

Questions? Send me a message - I answer all messages as quickly as I can.See something you like, but want it in a different color? It may not be exactly the same - but close! Have a design or idea of your own? Send me a message, I'm happy to do custom designs.

I own a rather finicky 12 yr old cat who doesn't paint, doesn't help me pack, heck he doesn't even chase mice, but I love him anyway.
