DIY Painted Stone



Hi everyone, some of you might have noticed my absence in the past few days, I've had a problem with my internet connection and could not post the new printable I had prepared neither the top5. But finally everything is working properly now and I took advantage of my no internet time to make this project.

First of all for this project you are going to need a stone, I found this smooth surfaced one when I was at the beach last month, and it took me a while to figure out what I wanted to paint in it, there are endless possibilities. I took advantage of the shape of the rock and made the drawing fit in that area, this drawing is inspired by a tattoo I saw on Pinterest.

Make the drawing on your stone, if your drawing skills are not the greatest, you can also transfer it by printing the image with the right size, cutting around the edges of the image and tracing the shape onto the surface.


Start by painting with the lightest color first, I had to paint two coats of yellow. Take some time to look at your image properly, discovering which parts are darker and have more shades or volume.
I used orange and a light shade of brown to give dimension to the body of the fish.



Lastly, add details like the eyes and if you want to protect your design paint a thin coat of clear varnish spray.




I still have to figure out where to put this, maybe I could use it as a paper weight, any suggestions?
Talk to you soon,
