Welcome to the joys of Rock Painting!
Rock painting is a wonderful hobby and a great way to express creativity. It’s a unique kind of art that provides an excellent opportunity to combine lots of fun with a sense of pride and achievement. As with any creative project, it is important to remember that the goal is to have fun not to produce perfection. At RiseBrite, we believe promoting creativity leads to more confident, happy, and mindful human beings. People who can connect with the world and themselves. People who can discover who they are and who they want to be. We hope to encourage you and inspire you to cultivate and nourish your imagination and creativity for a world full of possibilities.
Let’s unlock your creative potential, let’s paint!
Note that this post is a part of our “Rock Painting Tutorial Series” which has a set of companion videos on YouTube.
Let’s paint animals. This time, take a rock and make a quick lion drawing, like this.
Make thick lines to mark the areas of the drawing.
Now paint using yellow inside the face. Use a small brush.
With orange, paint the hair, use the finest brush of the set.
Cover completely this side of the rock, don’t go over the lines, and let it dry.
Continue with the second animal, the elephant. Draw it on the profile side, making big ears and trunk.
Paint the elephant with silver paint and use a flat brush.
Add pink or another favorite color on the background.
The third animal is a giraffe, draw its spots, long neck, and a big smile.
Use the yellow paint on the mouth area.
The orange color is good to cover the skin.
Use brown paint to create the spots using the finest round brush.
For the background use light green, and let it dry to continue with the details.
The paint dries very quickly. This is how your rocks would look like.
To highlight the lines use our acrylic black marker. Trace all lines of the face, applying very softly the marker tip over it.
Also, use the acrylic gold marker to make some line details around the face like the hair.
Remark the elephant’s drawing too with the acrylic black marker.
Add dots over the elephant’s background with the metal blue acrylic marker.
Make the same highlight with a black marker on the giraffe’s face. And finally, use a silver acrylic marker to add leaves and figure details on the giraffe’s background.
Once they’ve dried up you can put them in your 3D frame!
