Hi Anon - I purchased these at Hobby Lobby last year. Haven't been in recently to see if they still carry this shape, though!

Where can clear ornaments of this shape be found? Everywhere I've looked only has the round style.

Anon - Yes, the blue and green were also spraypaint. I just used high-gloss colors, but you could always spray a clear, high-gloss top coat if the colors you want aren't available in that finish.

thanks for sharing. ive used the metalic spray paint before but how were the green and blue ones made? was it also spraypaint? how did they get the gloss?
