To begin, wet a little paintbrush with a brown-and-black paint combination and paint a rock form on the paper with it. This will be accomplished by sketching several lumps and bumps to give the impression of a real rock. To give it a bright glare where the sun would naturally shine on it, paint a small section of the rock with white paint on one side.
How do you paint rocks?
Here are some of my favorite recommendations for getting the greatest painted rocks: Choose rocks that are smooth and flat.Before you start adorning the pebbles, make sure they are clean.Before you begin painting on the rock, seal it with a sealant.Paint your pattern on top of the base coat and apply multiple layers…Allow for drying time between layers.
To create little details and/or dots, use small brushes or a stylus to create them.
How do you make painted stones look like real stones?
Using a little darker hue, blend the edges of the stones together to give them the appearance of being shaded, much like genuine stones would be. Apply paint to the stones using a marine sponge, dabbing it over the surface in random spots to give them a three-dimensional, textured appearance. To create the desired effect, use a mix of your medium and darkest tones.
